Scott Barlow strikes out two, earns save Thursday

Scott Barlow pitched one inning, allowing one run on one hit and no walks while striking out two to earn the save in Kansas City’s 5-3 win against the White Sox on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

Barlow served up an 0-2 home run to Andrew Vaughn to leadoff the 9th inning but settled in strikeout the next two batters and record the final three outs in order. Barlow is now 18-for-21 in save opportunities this season. The 29-year-old closer is now 4-4 with a 2.32 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts in 54 1/3 innings across 50 appearances. The save was just Batlow’s second since the All-Star break as manager Mike Matheny has elected to also use Barlow in high leverage situations that aren’t necessarily “save” situations.
