Iglesias struck out two and retired the side in order to earn his 30th save of the season in a victory over the Pirates on Saturday. Iglesias was handed a 3-0 lead before disposing of the Bucs with a tidy 12-pitch, eight-strike outing to close the ninth and the game. The 2018 season marks the right-hander's first time reaching the 30-save mark. He'll be working for the third straight day if he appears during Sunday's season finale, into which he'll carry a stellar 2.44 ERA, 9.8 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 for an otherwise underachieving Cincinnati club.
Iglesias struck out one while working around a hit and two walks across 1.1 innings to earn his 29th save in Thursday's 4-2 win over Miami. It wasn't his sharpest outing but Iglesias still got the job done, giving him 29 saves in 33 chances this season. After allowing a run in three consecutive appearances to end August, the 28-year-old has been scored on just once in September, lowering his ERA to 2.38.
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.
