LHP Jake McGee picked up the save on Tuesday when he worked a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one, in a 4-2 win over the Rangers.
McGee was called upon for the second night in a row to protect a two-run lead vs. the Rangers. He got the job done once again by not allowing a baserunner while striking out the red hot Adolis Garcia to end the contest. Manager Gabe Kapler seems determined to use McGee in the ninth inning until he's no longer capable of closing out games. The 34-year-old southpaw now owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 23:4 K/BB ratio over 16 innings. He's 10-for-11 on save chances as well.
LHP Jake McGee earned his ninth save of the season on Monday when he allowed a pair of hits and a strikeout over a scoreless ninth inning in the Giants' 3-1 win over the Rangers.
McGee allowed a pair of singles in his appearance but was able to avoid blowing the save. He was rock solid to begin the season but has looked more vulnerable lately. He's still 9-for-10 on save opportunities this year but he's got a subpar 4.80 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.
LHP Jake McGee picked up the save on Friday when he struck out three and walked one over a scoreless ninth inning in the Giants' 5-4 win over the Padres.
Despite manager Gabe Kapler saying Tyler Rogers could be in line for some save opportunities, it was McGee who got the chance on Friday. He performed well and buttoned up his eighth save of the season. He walked Jake Cronenworth to begin the frame but then fanned the next three hitters to end it. This was the veteran southpaw's first save since April 22. He owns a 5.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 21:4 K/BB ratio over 14 innings pitched. He should continue to get the lion's share of save chances moving forward.
LHP Jake McGee allowed four runs on four hits with one strikeout over 2/3 of an inning in the Giants' 8-6 loss to the Rockies in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader.
McGee entered in the bottom of the seventh inning against his former team to protect a 6-2 San Francisco lead. He recorded the first two outs with a single sandwiched between them before surrendering two more singles and a double. He exited the game with one out remaining the Giants clinging to a 6-5 lead. Camilo Doval would go on to blow the lead and take the loss via a Charlie Blackmon three-run homer. McGee has now given up seven runs (five earned) over his last 2 2/3 innings (three appearances). It should be noted that none of those runs were allowed in a save situation, though.
