Holland earned the save Tuesday against the Brewers by tossing a scoreless inning, allowing one hit while striking out two.
With the Royals holding onto a three-run lead, Holland was called upon to finish things up. He nearly surrendered a home run to Manny Pina, but Andrew Benintendi came through with a solid catch to bail him out. With his pair of punchouts, Holland picked up his 500th strikeout as a Royal and his 40th of the season across 38 innings. The right-hander has tallied six saves to go with a 4.74 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.
