James Karinchak earns save Tuesday

by Matthew Terelle | Guardians Correspondent | Wed, Sep 7th 5:18am EDT

James Karinchak threw a scoreless ninth inning to save a 4-1 win over the Royals on Tuesday. Karinchak struck out two and did not allow a base runner.

Fantasy Impact:

Karinchak got the save chance with regular closer Emmanuel Clase getting the night off. Karinchak notched an impressive five swinging strikes on just 12 pitches in the frame. The set-up man now has a 1-0 record, 1.04 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, one save, four holds, and 43 strikeouts in 26 innings of work. He's worth a roster spot in leagues that have saves+holds as a stat category.
