Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Notches 33rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez gave up two hits and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 33rd save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Brewers.

Vazquez has been outstanding in the second half, posting a 1.66 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 23:5 K:BB in 21.2 innings while going a perfect 10-for-10 on save chances since the All-Star break. The southpaw should be good for a few more saves over the final weeks as he closes the book on a highly successful first full season as the Bucs' closer.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Secures two-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez picked up his 32nd save of the season Wednesday against the Cardinals, allowing one run on three hits and one walk across two innings. He struck out two.

Vazquez entered the game with two runners on and no outs in the eighth inning and proceeded to allow one run to score on a single and an RBI fielder's choice. He allowed a run on two singles in the ninth inning before striking out the final two batters of the game to secure the victory. Vazquez has now converted all three of his save chances this month despite allowing a run in two of those appearances.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Collects 25th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez slammed the door in the ninth Friday against the Cardinals, as he tossed a scoreless inning while allowing a hit and striking out one.

Vazquez did allow the tying run to reach base, but he retired the final two batters as the Pirates secured a 7-6 victory. He's served as a dominant closer yet again in 2018, successfully converting 15 straight saves. Vazquez sports a 3.09 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 65 strikeouts across 46.2 frames this season.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Picks up 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez allowed a run on two hits in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Cubs but escaped with his 24th save of the season.

Addison Russell followed David Bote's leadoff single with an RBI base hit, but Russell was out trying to stretch a triple, and Vazquez then retired Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist to end the threat. Vazquez has converted his last 14 save opportunities -- he hasn't blown a save since May 31 -- and looks plenty secure in his role. Keone Kela, acquired from Texas on Monday, is expected to serve as the Pirates' primary setup man down the stretch.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Yields rare home run Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez allowed a two-run homer to Yonder Alonso on Wednesday, snapping a 15-game, 15.2-inning scoreless streak during which the reliever whiffed 29 batters.

The home run was just the second Vazquez has allowed to a left-handed batter in his four-year career -- he surrendered a three-run shot to Jay Bruce in June of 2016. Although the Pirates have won 11 of their last 12 games, Vazquez has thrown just two times since July 14 because of the team's lopsided victories. He's compiled 13 saves, a 1.33 ERA and 36:7 K:BB after blowing four of five save opportunities at the end of May.
