    • Barnes allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out two to earn the save Tuesday against Atlanta. Barnes bounced back after blowing an opportunity in his previous outing to record his 15th save of the season. He did struggle a bit, however, as he allowed the leadoff hitter to reach base and ultimately come around to score. Barnes has now allowed one earned run in four of his last seven appearances, which has resulted in two blown saves. Even so, it appears he's still locked into the closer role. Barnes has earned some leeway by maintaining a 3.07 ERA with a stellar 52:7 K:BB across 29.1 innings on the campaign.

    • Barnes (2-1) blew the save but won Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Yankees, pitching the ninth inning and allowing one run on one hit and two walks with two strikeouts. Pitching for the third consecutive day, Barnes entered in the ninth to protect a 4-3 lead and coughed up a Gleyber Torres RBI double to knot the score and send the game to extras. Boston was able to plate two runs in the 10th to award Barnes the win despite the blown save. It's safe to say Barnes won't pitch in a make-up game at home against Miami tomorrow, but he should be good to go for a three-game set against Houston starting Tuesday.

    • Barnes struck out the only batter he faced to earn the save in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Yankees. Brandon Workman walked two batters before Barnes entered the game with two outs in the ninth inning. Barnes retired Kyle Higashioka on five pitches for the save. The right-hander is now 14-for-15 in save chances this year. He's posted a 2.49 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 45:5 K:BB across 25.1 innings as Boston's unquestioned closer.
