Smith tossed a perfect inning with a pair of strikeouts in a non-save situation Friday against the Mets.
Smith has settled back down with a pair of scoreless outings (5:1 K:BB) following his worst blown save of the season Tuesday against the Rockies (three earned runs over an inning). Neither of those last two appearances resulted in saves, but both came in tight contests (Friday's coming in the ninth inning of a tie game at home). Smith now owns a 2.61 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 6.1 K/BB to go along with 24 saves in 42 appearances.
Smith gave up three runs on four hits (two home runs) while striking out two over an inning en route to his second blown save of the season Tuesday against the Rockies.
Luckily for Smith, the Giants were able to rally back and secure the victory, giving the closer his third win of the season. The 30-year-old has blown two saves in three chances since the All-Star break after going a perfect 23-for-23 prior to that. Tuesday's three-run meltdown was Smith's worst outing of the season by far. The veteran southpaw was able to bounce back after his first blown save last week, so fantasy owners shouldn't worry quite yet.
