Lorenzen allowed two hits and struck out three in 1.2 scoreless innings, earning the save in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Twins.

The righty has now pitched 4.2 scoreless innings and hasn't walked a batter since returning from the injured list July 30. Cincinnati's bullpen has struggled to hold leads all season, but Lorenzen appears to be a prime candidate to close games for the remainder of the season. Further, having appeared in just five games this season, Lorenzen likely has the freshest arm on the Reds' staff, increasing the likelihood of frequent usage going forward.
