Iglesias (4-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk over 1.1 innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against Detroit. Iglesias worked through a perfect ninth inning but coughed up a two-run, go-ahead single in the 10th. The 6-foot-2 righty has given up a run in each of his last four outings, boosting his season ERA to 4.30 through 29.1 innings. It was his first loss since April 23 and he's blown just one of his last 11 save chances.
Iglesias picked up the save Thursday against the Tigers, giving up one run on two hits and a walk while fanning two across two innings. He also tossed a wild pitch. Iglesias fetched his second straight save and while his command wasn't entirely sharp, he still got the job done. The right-hander has allowed runs in each of his last three appearances but has the closer role completely locked down, as he has gone 12-for-15 in save chances throughout the year.
Iglesias collected the save Saturday against the Diamondbacks, allowing one run on one hit in one inning. He struck out one. Iglesias was called on in the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead. He gave up a two-out homer to Josh Rojas but was able to successfully close out the contest for his 11th save. Iglesias has held opponents scoreless in 18 of 25 appearances this season, registering a 4.15 ERA and 38:5 K:BB across 26 innings.
Iglesias (4-2) blew the save in Friday's 6-5 victory against the Diamondbacks but got the win, allowing one run on one hit with two strikeouts in one inning. Iglesias was selected to pitch the ninth of a one-run game but served up a game-tying two-out home run to Eduardo Escobar to blow the chance. The Angels were able to scratch across a run in the top of the 10th and win in that one extra frame, which awarded Iglesias his fourth victory of the season. Iglesias now has a 3.96 ERA, but his job appears safe as Los Angeles lacks viable options at the back end of the bullpen.
Iglesias earned the save over Seattle on Friday, pitching two perfect innings and striking out four. Iglesias came on in a pressure situation in the eighth inning, taking over with the bases loaded and nobody out in a one-run game.

After a rough start to the season, Iglesias has converted eight straight save chances. Since April 25, he has posted a 2.25 ERA and 23:2 K:BB across 16 innings.
