Holland earned the save against the Angels on Tuesday, pitching 1.1 scoreless innings and yielding two hits along with one walk while striking out two.

Holland came on to protect a one-run lead with two outs and a runner on third base in the top of the eighth frame, striking out Jon Jay to end the threat. He walked a tightrope in the ninth, however, allowing two of the first three batters to reach base before striking out Mike Trout and eventually escaping courtesy of a Salvador Perez pickoff throw to third base. Despite the tenuous finish, Holland had some big moments to earn his first save.
