Iglesias struck out three and walked one in a hitless ninth inning Tuesday to pick up the save against the Brewers. Iglesias walked Curtis Granderson to start off the ninth inning but then got Christian Yelich, Domingo Santana and Hernan Perez to strike out swinging. Iglesias has now thrown four straight hitless innings and is 28-for-32 in save opportunities on the year. The 28-year-old sports a 2.43 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 72:22 K:BB in 66.2 innings. Despite playing for a team that is in last place in its division, Iglesias is tied for fifth in the NL with his 28 saves.
Iglesias got the save against the Cubs on Sunday, firing a scoreless ninth inning without allowing a baserunner to close out the Reds' 2-1 victory. He didn't record a strikeout, but it was still an easy outing for the right-hander, who bagged his 27th save of the season. He's having a solid season despite playing on a last-place club in Cincinnati, with this outing lowering his ERA to 2.47 and his WHIP to 1.05 through 65.2 innings.
Iglesias had one walk and one strikeout during a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Dodgers. Iglesias threw only eight of his 15 pitches for strikes, but induced a double play after walking Yasmani Grandal to escape unscathed. The 28-year-old is 26-for-30 in save situations this season with a 2.51 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 69:21 K:BB across 64.2 innings.
Iglesias allowed an unearned run while issuing three walks Sunday against the Cardinals, but he came away with his 25th save of the season. He did not record a strikeout. Iglesias walked the leadoff batter and saw him come around to score on a passed ball and a run-scoring groundout. He then issued back-to-back walks with two outs before retiring the final batter to close it out. This outing continues a rough patch of form for Iglesias, who's now been scored upon in five of his last six outings while enduring two losses and a blown save in that stretch. Still, he holds a 2.48 ERA as well as a 1.07 WHIP for this season and should bounce back sooner rather than later.
Iglesias earned the save Tuesday, giving up one run on two hits and zero walks while striking out one in 1.1 innings against the Brewers. He has given up a run in each of his last two outings, taking a loss Aug. 24 in Chicago but notching the save in this one at home against Milwaukee, thanks to his teammates spotting him a 9-6 lead with four outs to go. Even with some recent bumps in the road, Iglesias has a firm hold on the closer role in Cincinnati.
