Joakim Soria allowed one run on one hit while striking out two through an inning in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Yankees. He picked up his first save of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Closer Liam Hendriks received a breather after registering a five-out save Wednesday. Soria was called upon in the ninth inning to protect a three-run lead. He allowed a solo home run to Gleyber Torres, but was able to settle down and notch his first save of the season. Soria now has 221 saves to his name over the course of his career, but does not figure to get many more opportunities this season with Liam Hendriks firmly entrenched in the closer role.
