Raisel Iglesias struck out all three batters he faced Sunday to earn his fourth save.
Iglesias needed just 15 total pitches to carve up Chris Carter, Hernan Perez, and Orlando Arcia. The right-hander has now earned the Reds' last two saves with Tony Cingrani hitting a rough patch. Iglesias carries sneaky fantasy value into the final week.
Brandon Finnegan tossed five scoreless innings Sunday in the Reds' win over the Brewers.
Finnegan closed out his 2016 with a bang, striking out four without issuing a walk and holding the Brewers to just three hits. Cincinnati will now shut him down. The 23-year-old left-hander finishes with a cool 3.98 ERA and 145 strikeouts in 172 innings.
Eduardo Rodriguez struck out a career-high 13 over 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball, netting a no-decision in Sunday's 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rays.
It was a record-setting day for the Red Sox, as Rodriguez combined with the bullpen to strike out 21 Rays batters over the first nine innings. The left-hander lost out on a win when Tampa knotted things up in the eighth inning, but much more important is that E-Rod is hitting his stride as the playoffs near with a 2.03 ERA over his last eight starts. Boston is playing its best baseball of the year, as well, with 11 straight victories. Rodriguez will close out his regular season at home against the Blue Jays.
Edwin Diaz tallied his 17th save Sunday in the Mariners' defeat of the Twins.
Diaz struck out one in a scoreless 1-2-3 ninth to preserve the Mariners' one-run lead. It was a reassuring outing from the hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander, who blew a save Wednesday when he surrendered a game-tying solo home run to Jose Bautista.
Edinson Volquez surrendered four earned runs over 2 2/3 innings but the Royals beat the Tigers on Sunday.
Tigers starter Matt Boyd was far worse, yielding four runs in the top of the first inning without recording an out. Volquez walked four and gave up six hits, including a Victor Martinez grand slam in the bottom of the third. He'll try for better in his final start of the 2016 season next weekend versus Cleveland.
