The Angels were able to scratch across a run in the top of the 10th and win in that one extra frame, which awarded Iglesias his fourth victory of the season.

The 31-year-old has recorded one save so far this season and has already allowed four runs, including two long balls, in four appearances. That said, Iglesias has struck out seven hitters in four innings and has a lengthy track record as a reliable closer, so he's likely to turn it around soon.

Iglesias entered the contest in the eighth inning and was able to record the final two outs of the frame, but he wasn't able to preserve a 4-3 lead heading into the ninth. After he hit Nick Madrigal with a pitch, Adam Eaton hit a one-out grounder back to Iglesias, who made an errant throw to third base that allowed Madrigal to score the tying run. Fortunately, Jared Walsh was able to bail Iglesias out in the bottom of the ninth with a walkoff, three-run blast off Matt Foster. Considering that Iglesias was used three times in the Angels' four-game season-opening series with Chicago, he may not be available out of the bullpen Monday against the Astros.

Iglesias struck out two while recording the save in Thursday's win over the White Sox.
Iglesias was dominant in his Angels debut, fanning two of the three batters that he faced while recording an eight pitch save. The 30-year-old will look to hold his closing role in an Angels bullpen that will be looking for consistency.

Manager Joe Maddon noted late last week that Iglesias could be used for multiple-inning saves in certain situations, but the veteran closer isn't expected to be used much in non-save situations. Iglesias has compiled 106 career saves and brings a level of stability to the back end of an Angels bullpen that ranked dead last in baseball with 14 blown saves last season.
