Alex Claudio allowed one run (unearned) while striking out one across one inning to earn the save in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Cubs.
Claudio entered the game in the tenth inning and did not allow a hit or a walk to record his first save of the year. Brewers closer Josh Hader was unavailable after pitching one 1/3 innings on Friday. Claudio will most likely be used in middle relief situations, and is not expected to see save opportunities. The 28-year-old owns a 2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 4:2 K:BB across six 1/3 innings this season.
