Iglesias (2-2) struck out one in a perfect eighth inning to earn the win against Boston on Sunday. Iglesias entered Sunday's game with the Angels trailing by a run in the bottom of the eighth inning, but a Shohei Ohtani home run in the top of the ninth put the right-hander in line for the win. Iglesias now has six saves with a 5.14 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 14 innings this year.
Iglesias gave up one hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his sixth save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Astros. The former Red has converted four straight save opportunities, going 6-for-8 overall to begin his tenure with the Angels. Iglesias has been far from automatic, posting a 5.54 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 13 innings, but his 17:3 K:BB is sharp, while his 20.6 percent swinging strike rate and 42.9 percent groundball rate are both career highs, suggesting better days ahead for his ratios.
Iglesias pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one walk and one hit while striking out one to secure the save against the Dodgers on Sunday. Iglesias has been very inconsistent this season. Sunday's save wasn't easy, with the tying run at second with only one out. However, Iglesias was able to work his way out of it to hold on to the 2-1 win. The 31-year-old has a 6.00 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP in 12 innings. The Angels would like more consistency out of their closer, but his 15 strikeouts and three walks are a good sign.
Iglesias did not allow a baserunner and struck out one to earn the save Wednesday against the Rangers. Iglesias was called upon to protect a one-run lead, and he had no issues doing so to lock in his fourth save of the campaign. He's now 4-for-6 in save opportunities this season, though there is no indication that he is in danger of losing his role. Iglesias has a 6.00 ERA across nine innings for the campaign, though that's bloated when considering his excellent 13:1 K:BB.
