Kyle Finnegan seals the deal, Nationals edge Brewers 6-5

Kyle Finnegan secured his 25th save of the season in a nail-biter against the Brewers, allowing no hits and one walk in his inning of work.

Fantasy Impact

Despite not recording a strikeout, Finnegan's performance was crucial in preserving the Nationals' 6-5 victory. His ability to maintain a low ERA (2.45) and WHIP (1.02) throughout the season, coupled with a solid 9.4 K/9 rate, continues to make him a reliable option in fantasy leagues, especially in categories that value saves. While his FIP (4.08) suggests some underlying risks, his performance in high-pressure situations, evidenced by his 25 saves, should keep him as a preferred closing option in most fantasy setups.
