Hendriks struck out the side in the ninth inning to record the save in Monday's 5-2 win over the Athletics.

Hendriks, who had allowed three home runs in his last two ninth-inning appearances, had no issues dispatching Oakland batters Monday. He was the third in a line of dominant relief performances, following Michael Kopech (two innings, three strikeouts) and Craig Kimbrel (one inning, three strikeouts). The save was Hendriks' 27th and allays concerns that built up over the previous two outings.
