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

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.

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.

It was a dominant frame from Familia, who induced a comebacker and notched two strikeouts. The 26-year-old had a pair of rough outings over the weekend and hasn’t been as sharp overall as he was last season, but like Matt Harvey’s performance, this was an encouraging day for him.

Jeurys Familia gave up four runs in a non-save situation Friday against the Dodgers.

Asked to hold a 5-1 lead, Familia gave up back-to-back singles to begin the ninth inning before striking out Joc Pederson swinging. Yasiel Puig followed with a single before Familia walked Yasmani Grandal to force in a run. He got the second out by striking out pinch-hitter Trayce Thompson swinging, but Chase Utley followed with a double to the right-center field gap to clear the bases and tie the ballgame. Familia struck out Corey Seager to get out of the frame and actually ended up the winning pitcher after Curtis Granderson led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run. The ugly outing increased his ERA from 2.01 to 3.47 on the year.
