Cody Allen picked up his 14th save of the season on Sunday, pitching a scoreless inning against the White Sox.
Allen did allow a walk, but he was able to pick up his 36th strikeout in 30 innings and keep the Twins from scoring. It's been a bit of a disappointing season for the normally steady closer, but he's still on pace to pick up 32 saves, and the scoreless outing lowers his ERA to 3.90 on the 2018 campaign.

Cody Allen picked up his 13th save of the season on Thursday, striking out the side in a scoreless inning against the White Sox.

Allen gave up a two-out single to Charlie Tilson, and he advanced all the way to third on defensive indifference and a wild pitch, but was stranded there. The veteran right-hander now sports a 4.03 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the season while converting 13 of his first 14 save chances.

Cody Allen picked up his 12th save of the season on Friday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a three-run advantage against the Tigers.

The veteran right-hander walked Niko Goodrum to begin the ninth inning, but retired the next three hitters in order -- including strikeouts of James McCann and John Hicks. Allen has now coverted 12 of his first 13 save chances on the season while registering a 3.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 31/11 K/BB ratio across 27 1/3 innings. He has been one of the few bright spots in what has been a disastrous Indians' bullpen.
Jun 8 - 10:05 PM

Cody Allen notched his 11th save Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Milwaukee.

He earned a four-out save, fanning three while throwing 16 of his 22 pitches for strikes. Allen had struggled in his previous two outings, allowing two runs in a loss to Minnesota on Sunday and also yielding a run in Tuesday's save. The right-hander carries a 3.76 ERA with a 9.91 K/9 over 27 relief outings this year.
Jun 6 - 5:57 PM

Cody Allen served up a solo home run but hung on to notch his 10th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Travis Shaw took Allen deep to lead off the top of the ninth inning, but the closer bounce back to retire the next three hitters to preserve the one-run victory. Allen has been shaky over the last month but still has just one blown save this season.
Jun 5 - 10:37 PM

Cody Allen earned a four-out save Thursday against the Twins, his ninth save of the year.

The Indians managed to blow an eight-run lead before retaking it with a solo homer in the eighth, and with a runner on and two outs in the bottom of the frame manager Terry Francona didn't want to risk blowing the lead again. That's when he called on Allen to face Brian Dozier, and Allen responded by getting Dozier to pop out to end the inning. The middle of the Twins' order then awaited Allen in the ninth, but he made quick work of them, getting Eddie Rosario to pop out before striking out Miguel Sano and Logan Morrison to end it. The 29-year-old has a 3.00 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 25 strikeouts in 24 innings this season and has converted nine of 10 save opportunities thus far.

Cody Allen struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Astros to earn his eighth save.

A game that saw 14 runs scored between the two teams, including six homers, threatened some hijinks in the ninth inning, but Allen had little trouble putting this one away. He's been largely good through 22 appearances, posting a 3.32 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 inning. Especially with Andrew Miller now back on the disabled list, Allen's job at the back of the Indians' bullpen is secure.
May 27 - 12:16 AM

Cody Allen got the last four outs without allowing a run against the Cubs to earn a save on Wednesday.

He retired all four batters he faced in the ballgame to lock down the drama-free save. He now has seven saves and a 3.10 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings. He has a secure grip on the closer's job even with relief ace Andrew Miller lurking behind him.
May 24 - 1:18 AM

Cody Allen gave up a solo home run in the ninth inning but still earned a save against the Astros on Saturday.

He came on with one out in the eighth inning with a runner on second base and got the next two batters to fly out harmlessly. He went back out for the final frame and served up a solo homer to Marwin Gonzalez. Luckily he was protecting a two-run lead. He now has six saves and a 3.38 ERA in 18 2/3 innings.
May 19 - 8:57 PM

Cody Allen picked up a loss and a blown save while allowing three runs against the Yankees on Sunday.

Allen gave up four hits in just 2/3 of an inning, and his intentional walk of Didi Gregorius doesn't help the WHIP, either. The normally reliable closer has now given up runs in three of his last five appearances, and his ERA has ballooned to 3.60 in the process. Allen should be just fine in the long term, but it doesn't make his struggles over the past week any less frustrating.
May 6 - 4:37 PM

Cody Allen picked up the win Monday in the Indians' defeat of the Rangers.

Allen got the final two outs of the eighth inning and the first two outs of the ninth inning, though he did allow two hits, two walks, and a run scored -- throwing a total of 41 pitches. Allen also struggled in his last appearance Friday against the Mariners, but there's no reason for alarm quite yet. Jeff Beliveau got the final out of the ninth inning Monday for his second career save, and first since 2014.
Apr 30 - 10:39 PM

Cody Allen turned in a spotless ninth inning to lock down a save against the Cubs on Wednesday.

He had no difficulties protecting a three-run lead while earning his fifth save of the season. Allen doesn't get much fanfare but has been one of the best closers in the game for several years running. He has yet to allow a run this season.
Apr 25 - 10:44 PM

Cody Allen struck out all three batters he faced to earn his fourth save of the season Monday night against the Orioles.

Allen carved up Chris Davis, Danny Valencia, and Chance Sisco to ice a 2-1 victory for Cleveland. The 29-year-old closer now has 12 strikeouts in 10 innings this season and he's yet to allow a run.
Apr 23 - 9:41 PM

Cody Allen struck out one in a scoreless frame Tuesday versus the Tigers to record his third save of the season.

On to hold a one-run lead, Allen induced a groundout and flyout to go along with his punchout. Andrew Miller notched a save Monday with Allen unavailable, but the former set up for the latter in this one. Allen hasn't allowed a run and permitted just three baserunners over his first six innings.
Apr 10 - 9:16 PM

Cody Allen got the win for the Indians on Sunday by firing a scoreless ninth inning against the Royals.

Allen didn't allow a hit, and he struck out two. It's the first win of the year for the right-hander to go along with his two saves, and he has yet to allow a run in the young 2018 season.
