Jeurys Familia secured his 50th consecutive regular season save in Friday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.
It wasn’t easy, as Familia threw 23 pitches and gave up one run on two hits and a walk. He ultimately put out the fire by getting Adeiny Hechavarra on a ground out to end the game. Familia’s control hasn’t been as sharp this season, as he has 18 walks in 45 1/3 innings after walking just 19 batters in 78 innings last year. But he continues to get the job done for New York.

Jeurys Familia loaded the bases with no outs but somehow escaped Tuesday's game against the Cubs with his 33rd save of the season.

Familia issued two walks to lead off the inning, and a Javier Baez bunt single spelled real trouble for the reliever trying to protect a one-run lead. But Familia got pinch-hitter Matt Szczur to ground into a forceout at home, and he then coaxed a ground ball double play from potential NL MVP Kris Bryant to end the threat and the game. It wasn't pretty, but saves are saves, and Familia now has 33 of them in 33 chances this year.

Jeurys Familia tossed a dominant ninth inning against the Phillies on Friday for his 32nd save of the season.

After being left unused by his manager in Tuesday’s All-Star Game, Familia came out firing and struck out two batters in the 1-2-3 frame. The 26-year-old was a bit shaky to begin the year, but he hasn’t allowed a run since way back on June 4. He owns the major-league lead with 32 saves and hasn’t blown a chance all year.

Jeurys Familia earned his 30th save of the season Wednesday in the Mets' 4-2 defeat of the Marlins.

That's a big number for July 6. Familia gave up a single to Chris Johnson with one out in the top of the ninth inning, but he promptly induced a game-ending double play grounder from Ichiro Suzuki (which held up after replay). Familia has a 2.61 ERA on the year and has not blown a save.
Jul 6 - 4:11 PM

Jeurys Familia got out of some hot water to record his 29th save of the season in Monday's win over the Marlins.

On to protect a two-run lead, Familia walked Marcell Ozuna and gave up a one-out single to Derek Dietrich to put runners on first and third with one out. However, he then induced a game-ending double play ball off the bat of Chris Johnson. Familia hasn't been as dominant as he's been last season with a 1.21 WHIP and just under a strikeout per inning. But, he holds a 2.68 ERA and is a perfect 29-for-29 in save chances.
Jul 4 - 8:18 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a perfect ninth inning Saturday, closing out a 4-3 win over the Cubs.

Familia struck out one in his clean inning of work, needing 11 pitches to get the job done. He's now a perfect 28-for-28 in save chances this year, leading the majors with a few days left to go before the All-Star break. The right-hander will certainly be among those making the trip to San Diego to represent the National League, as he owns a 2.75 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 38/13 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings this year.
Jul 3 - 12:51 AM

Jeurys Familia loaded the bases with one out but escaped unscathed Thursday, earning his 27th save in a 4-3 win over the Cubs.

Familia issued a leadoff walk to Miguel Montero and Ben Zobrist followed with a double to put runners in scoring position with no outs. After striking out Kris Bryant, Familia intentionally walked Anthony Rizzo to load the bases. And the high-wire act worked, as the right-hander struck out Willson Contreras and got Javier Baez to pop out to end the game. Familia is still without a blown save in 27 chances, owning a 2.82 ERA and 1.23 WHIP through 38 1/3 innings.
Jun 30 - 11:55 PM

Jeurys Familia is unavailable to pitch on Sunday.

He's pitched in two straight games and worked four out of the last five days and needs a break. Addison Reed is also likely unavailable Sunday, so the Mets could use Hansel Robles or Erik Goeddel should a save opportunity arise.
Jun 26 - 11:23 AM

Jeurys Familia worked out of a two-on, one-out jam against the Braves on Saturday to earn his 26th save.

Familia, protecting a one-run lead in the 11th inning, gave up a leadoff single and a one-out walk, but he got Nick Markakis to ground into a double play to end the game. The 26-year-old remains a perfect 26-for-26 in save opportunities and owns a 2.89 ERA in 38 appearances.
Jun 25 - 11:02 PM

Jeurys Familia survived some drama for a four-out save in Friday’s win over the Braves.

Familia entered the game with one on in the bottom of the eighth and managed to induce a ground out from Adonis Garcia to end the threat, but he got into immediate trouble in the ninth by giving up a single to Tyler Flowers and hitting Erick Aybar with a pitch. Chase d’Arnaud attempted to move the runners into scoring position with a bunt, but Wilmer Flores started an unusual double play after diving for the ball. Familia struck out Jace Peterson swinging for the final out, but the ball got away and he needed an excellent throw from Travis d’Arnaud and a brilliant stretch from James Loney at first base to get the out. Familia now owns the team record with 25 consecutive saves to begin a season.
Jun 24 - 11:05 PM

Jeurys Familia collected his 24th save of the season Wednesday against the Royals.

Familia worked a 1-2-3 top of the ninth inning, striking out one of the three batters he faced. The right-hander is now 24-for-24 in save opportunities this season.
Jun 22 - 4:22 PM

Jeurys Familia struck out two over a scoreless inning of work to earn his 23rd save Tuesday against the Royals.

Familia gave up a hit but no other damage in the inning. The reliever still hasn't blown a save in 23 chances this year, owning a 3.18 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in the process. His 23 saves are most in the National League.
Jun 21 - 10:33 PM

Jeurys Familia will be unavailable for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

The right-hander has shouldered a large workload, already appearing in 31 games this season and he has worked in three straight nights. Addison Reed would likely handle the ninth inning should a save situation arise on Saturday.
Jun 11 - 1:15 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a dominant 11th inning against the Brewers, striking out two to collect his 21st save on Friday night.

Familia did not allow any baserunners. He improved his ERA to 3.68 and now sports 29 strikeouts and 10 walks in his 30 1/3 innings. Familia has a firm grip on the closer's role for the foreseeable future.
Jun 11 - 2:27 AM

Jeurys Familia walked three Pirates in the 10th inning but hung on for his 19th save on Wednesday.

After the Mets took the lead in the top of the 10th inning, Familia started the bottom half of the inning by walking the first two batters. He induced a double play off the bat of Sean Rodriguez to reduce some of the pressure that was building. He followed that with another walk before freezing David Freese with a 97mph fastball on the corner for strike three to end the game. Familia has been a bit shaky of late but is still firmly entrenched as the Mets closer.
