    Phillies' Hector Neris: Earns save in series finale

    Hector Neris struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against the Marlins on Sunday.Ranger Suarez has been used in save situations recently, but he had pitched on each of the last two days and was charged with a blown save Saturday. As a result, Neris was brought on in the ninth inning Sunday to preserve the Philadelphia Phillies' three-run lead, and he picked up his 12th save of the year. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander could be the favorite for closing duties going forward, but it was encouraging to see him earn his first save since June 25 in Sunday's series finale.

    Phillies' Hector Neris: Blows another save

    Hector Neris (1-5) took the loss Saturday, giving up two unearned runs on one hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning in a 4-3 loss to the Mets. He struck out one.The Philadelphia Phillies took a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning and manager Joe Girardi turned to Neris rather than Jose Alvarado to close the door. Instead, Rhys Hoskins committed a fielding error to put the leadoff man aboard and the right-hander fell apart, walking in the tying run before a Michael Conforto sacrifice fly ended it. Alvarado blew a save attempt Friday after Girardi had suggested the southpaw was now the team's top option in the ninth, and until someone else in the Phillies bullpen shows they can get the job done consistently, Neris will likely remain in the closer mix despite going 11-for-17 on save chances this season.

    Phillies' Hector Neris: Out as Phillies' closer

    Manager Joe Girardi said Friday that Hector Neris has been supplanted as the Philadelphia Phillies' closer by Jose Alvarado, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Girardi indicated after Neris blew another save Wednesday that he'd consider making a change at closer, and Alvarado will now be Philadelphia's top option in save situations.

    Phillies' Hector Neris: Blows another save, job in jeopardy

    Hector Neris (1-4) took the loss after giving up two runs on three hits during the ninth inning to blow the save Wednesday against the Nationals. Manager Joe Girardi said after the game he'll take Thursday's scheduled off day to "think about" making a change at closer, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.The right-hander threw eight of 10 pitches for strikes, but he caught too much of the plate as Washington tallied two runs on three singles and a sacrifice bunt. Neris now has three blown saves in his past five appearances with six runs allowed over 4.1 innings during that stretch. He had a 1.90 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 29:8 K:BB while going 9-for-11 in save opportunities before his current struggles. Jose Alvarado and Sam Coonrod are likely to be in the mix for saves if Girardi opts to remove Neris from the closer's role.

    Phillies' Hector Neris: Blows second straight save chance

    Hector Neris allowed three runs on one hit and two walks during the ninth inning to get tagged with his fourth blown save in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Yankees.Neris entered with the Philadelphia Phillies up 7-4 in the ninth. The right-hander retired the first batter he faced but then gave up consecutive walks before allowing a game-tying, three-run homer to DJ LeMahieu. It marked the reliever's second blown save in as many opportunities, but he should keep his closer job for the time being, considering he has a solid 3.16 ERA and 33:11 K:BB to go along with nine saves on the campaign. With that said, it won't be surprising if manager Joe Girardi decides to stay away from Neris in Sunday's series finale given that he threw 30 pitches Saturday.
