Iglesias complained before Monday's game about how he's being used more often in non-save situations, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "You can see the other closers, they don't pitch in tie games," Iglesias said. "I'm the only one who comes in tie games and I've given up homers and I'm losing some games. I feel really bad. I already have five losses, something that hasn't happened (to anyone else) in the big leagues. Five losses in the first month of ball. That shouldn't be like that."
This comment came on the heels of his fifth loss of the season on Sunday. He entered the game in the ninth inning with a 4-4 tie, allowed a double and then a two-run homer to Brandon Crawford. The complaint rings hollow, though -- he blew the save Friday night, and of course there was no save possibility Sunday with the game already tied in the ninth.
Iglesias (1-5) recorded just two outs while allowed two runs on two hits, taking the loss against the Giants on Sunday. He struck out one batter.
Iglesias came into a 4-4 contest with one out in the ninth and promptly yielded a Buster Posey double and Brandon Crawford go-ahead homer. In his last three appearances, the 29-year-old has allowed four runs, going 0-2 with a blown save in the process. He's still the Reds primary closer, but Amir Garret could get some looks if he continues to struggle.
Iglesias (1-4) took the loss against the Mets on Tuesday by allowing one run on two hits while recording only one out.
Iglesias entered for the bottom of the 10th inning and was greeted with a 10-pitch at-bat from J.D. Davis, which ended in a leadoff double. The 29-year-old also factored in the decision Monday as he earned the win with two scoreless innings after entering in a tie game. The right-hander has a 3.68 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 23:7 K:BB through 14.2 innings. and is 6-for-7 in save opportunities.
Iglesias (1-3) picked up the win in Monday's 5-4 victory over the Mets, giving up one hit and one walks over two scoreless innings of relief while striking out four.
Entering a 4-4 tie in the eighth inning, Iglesias shut down New York's bats and got rewarded for his efforts when Jesse Winker took Edwin Diaz deep in the top of the ninth. The Reds closer now sports a 3.14 ERA and 23:7 K:BB through 14.1 innings with a win, six saves and a hold in 12 appearances.
Iglesias allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two across 1.2 innings to earn his sixth save Thursday against the Braves.
Iglesias came in with one out in the eighth inning after Zach Duke allowed a two-run homer to bring the Reds' lead down to one. While he allowed two baserunners, Iglesias had little trouble closing out the game with only one runner reaching scoring position on fielder's indifference. After starting the season with some poor efforts, Iglesias has now turned in five consecutive scoreless outings and has his ERA down to 3.65 paired with a 1.30 WHIP.
