    Nationals' Kyle Finnegan: Settles down for 10th save

    Kyle Finnegan walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 3-0 win over Colorado.After blowing his last two save chances by allowing a combined six runs over his last 2.1 innings, it was encouraging to see Finnegan keep the goose egg on the board. The right-hander has mostly been an effective option this year with a 3.34 ERA, although his 1.45 WHIP and 62:31 K:BB in 62 innings are far from encouraging ratios. He's 10-for-13 in save chances since taking over ninth-inning duties after Brad Hand and Daniel Hudson were traded at the deadline.

    Nationals' Kyle Finnegan: Another meltdown Friday

    Kyle Finnegan (5-8) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk in one innings, taking the loss and a blown save versus Colorado on Friday.Tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the ninth inning, Finnegan blew a save for the second straight outing. He allowed a solo home run to Elias Diaz and an RBI single to Brendan Rodgers, which was enough to stick the right-hander with the loss. The 30-year-old has a 3.39 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 61:30 K:BB through 61 innings this year. Mason Thompson and Patrick Murphy both pitched perfect innings prior to Finnegan's meltdown Friday, and they could be the top candidates to get any save chances should manager Dave Martinez take Finnegan out of the closer role.
