Steve Cishek was brought in to get the last out of the game and earned a save against the Reds on Saturday.
With Pedro Strop out for the rest of the regular season with a hamstring injury the Cubs' ninth-inning situation is quite murky right now. The two favorites for saves are Jesse Chavez and Cishek. Chavez started the ninth inning and retired left-handed batter Scooter Gennett before giving up a single to Jose Peraza. Lefty Randy Rosario was then brought in to retire Joey Votto, then the Cubs turned to Cishek to face Eugenio Suarez for the final out. The bottom line is this game didn't really resolve any of the confusion regarding which Cubs reliever will serve as the primary closer for the final two weeks of the season. Cishek probably has the edge because he does have extensive closing experience (124 career saves) and Chavez does not. Cishek has 23 holds, four saves and a 2.32 ERA on the season. Sep 15 - 7:35 PM
