RP - OAK
Nik Turley struck out one across a perfect inning in Thursday's 2-0 Game 2 win over the Cardinals. He earned his first save of the season.
Turley entered the game in the ninth to protect a two-run lead and retired the side to earn his first save of the year. Richard Rodriguez was used in the first game and unavailable for Game 2. Turley was given the opportunity to notch his first career save. He owns a 3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 9:7 to K:BB across 11 1/3 innings for the season.
Nik Turley lasted all of two outs, giving up five runs over six hits in the Thursday night loss to the White Sox.
He's given up 23 runs over 9.1 innings and will be taking a trip back down to the minors. The Twins will announce his roster spot replacement sometime Friday.
