Raisel Iglesias worked a scoreless ninth inning Thursday against the Cubs to earn his 24th save of the season.
Iglesias retired the first batter he faced before allowing a one-out single, bringing the tying run to the plate. He got some help from his defense when Jon Jay was thrown out trying to steal second base, and the right-hander then struck out Alex Avila to end the game. He's now got 24 saves in 25 chances and owns a stout 1.85 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 80/24 K/BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old is establishing himself as one of the game's premier relievers.
