Doval (2-4) took the loss Friday versus the White Sox, allowing an unearned run on two hits while striking out two and walking none in one inning. It was Doval's own error that allowed Gavin Sheets to get aboard in the ninth inning with one out. Doval struck out Yoan Moncada, but then allowed a pair of two-out singles that led to a run. The Giants' offense wasn't able to do anything in the bottom of the ninth, leaving the right-hander with the loss. He's surrendered four runs (three earned) in his last five innings. Doval has a 2.88 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 42:13 K:BB across 34.1 innings while adding 12 saves, a hold and two blown saves in 35 outings.
Doval walked one and struck out two in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the save in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Tigers. Dominic Leone got into trouble in the eighth inning, but Doval was able to bail him out by striking out Jonathan Schoop with the bases loaded. Doval issued his walk in the ninth, then escaped the jam by getting Javier Baez to ground into a double play. This was Doval's first save since June 18, as he'd seen three straight non-save situations. The hard-throwing righty has a 2.97 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 40:13 K:BB through 33.1 innings. He's added 12 saves, two blown saves, one hold and a 3-2 record while serving as the Giants' top high-leverage arm.
Doval (2-3) allowed a run on two hits and a walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Monday versus Atlanta. Doval entered a 1-1 game in the ninth inning, but he pitched himself into trouble with a walk and a single. He gave up a two-out walkoff single to Orlando Arcia to end the close game. Doval's scoreless streak came to a close at 8.2 frames. The Giants' closer has been mostly steady in June while maintaining a 2.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB while logging 11 saves in 13 chances. This was likely a bump in the road for the right-hander, but he had a stretch in late May and early June of allowing runs in four straight appearances, so it will be important that he doesn't let this turn into a slump.
Doval pitched a clean ninth inning to pick up the save in a 7-5 win over the Pirates on Saturday. It was a dominant inning for Doval, who didn't allow a baserunner and threw nine of his 11 pitches for strikes. The game ended on a nasty 100.8 mph cutter to Daniel Vogelbach, which caught him looking for strike three. Doval has now converted 11 of 13 save chances so far this season, and he boasts a 10.4 K/9 rate, which is appropriate for a shutdown closer.
Doval pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in Friday's 2-0 win over the Pirates. Carlos Rodon threw eight shutout innings before Doval closed out the contest.

Doval's scoreless streak is up to 7.2 innings, a span in which he's allowed just two hits and two walks with eight strikeouts. He's 10-for-12 in saves chances with a 2-2 record, one hold, a 2.54 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB across 28.1 innings overall as the Giants' primary closer.
