Peralta struck out one and walked two in a hitless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the White Sox.

Peralta is now 6-for-6 in save chances this year and has allowed runs to score in only three of his 15 appearances. The 29-year-old has 14 strikeouts in 14.1 innings, and that swing-and-miss has helped mask some control issues (11 walks). Peralta appears to be locking down the closer role in Kansas City for the time being.
