Neris gave up a solo homer to Jed Lowrie before finishing the ninth inning and earning his 21st save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Athletics on Saturday.

Lowrie's bomb was the only hit Neris conceded, though he also plunked Mark Canha with a pitch before inducing a game-ending grounder. Neris has now allowed solo homers in consecutive appearances, but he still hasn't blown a save opportunity since June 21. The 28-year-old sports a respectable 3.19 ERA to go along with his 72 strikeouts through 67.2 innings this season.
