Rays reliever Jason Adam struck out both batters he faced in the ninth inning of Sunday's game against the Orioles. The 31-year-old needed just eight pitches (seven strikes) in order to achieve the save. Tampa Bay ultimately defeated Baltimore by a score of 4-1.
Adam owns a 1.19 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, and .134 OBA along with 10.52 K/9, 1.79 B/9, and 0.40 HR/9 through 49 outings this season. He has also racked up 17 holds while going 6-for-7 in save situations. One of the best extra-innings pitchers in Major League Baseball, Adam has surrendered just one earned run over his last 16 games.
