Astros' Ken Giles: Works two-inning save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed a hit and struck out two over two innings to pick up his 23rd save in Sunday's 2-1 win over Texas.

With the Astros bullpen having been the worst in the majors since the All-Star break (5.45 ERA) and the team riding a five-game losing streak, manager A.J. Hinch wasn't fooling around with this one. When Chris Devenski began the eighth inning with two walks, the manager went to Giles, who squelched that rally and then worked around a ninth-inning single to record his first save since July 28. There could be more multi-inning save attempts going forward for Giles until Hinch finds some stability among the setup crew, which was bolstered Sunday when Houston acquired Tyler Clippard from the White Sox.

Astros' Ken Giles: Blows one-run lead Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles suffered his third blown save Thursday against the White Sox, surrendering one run on one hit with two walks and three strikeouts in one inning of work.

Giles entered with a 2-1 lead, but surrendered a one-out solo homer to light-hitting second baseman Yoan Moncada. Clearly shaken by the game-tying long ball, Giles proceeded to walk two of the next three batters, equaling the total number of free passes he had allowed in his previous 12 appearances combined. The hard-throwing righty's still 22-for-25 in save opportunities, so he's in no danger of losing the closer job.

Astros' Ken Giles: Throws in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed one hit and struck out two batters over 1.1 innings in Saturday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

This was the second straight non-save opportunity for Giles, who entered a tie game with two runners on in the eighth inning and successfully squelched the budding rally. The Astros bullpen, which ranks 20th with a 4.39 ERA, has begun to waver of late, particularly the setup crew. Will Harris (shoulder) is on the disabled list and Chris Devenski, who walked two consecutive batters Saturday and then put them into scoring position with a wild pitch, has allowed eight runs and four home runs over the last 9.2 innings. There may be more non-save situations ahead for Giles until manager A.J. Hinch develops more confidence in the setup crew.

Astros' Ken Giles: Notches 22nd save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his 22nd save of the year in a 6-5 win over the Tigers.

While the Astros' potent offense sometimes overshoots the mark and denies him a save situation, Giles has still been on a roll in July, posting a 1.23 ERA and 0.68 WHIP in 7.1 innings over eight appearances while converting all four of his save chances. The 26-year-old flamethrower isn't quite an elite-tier closer, but he remains among the best of the rest.

Astros' Ken Giles: Works non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles worked around a double to record a scoreless ninth inning and close out Houston's 5-0 win over Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Giles was brought into a non-save situation because he'd thrown just a third of an inning since July 17. The right-handed closer has been called on 14 times in non-save situations and posted a 4.05 ERA, having allowed six runs, nine hits and eight walks over 13.1 innings.
