Seth Maness slammed the door on the Reds in the 13th inning as the Cardinals eked out a 4-3 victory on Wednesday.
Regular closer Trevor Rosenthal had pitched in the ninth and 10th innings, explaining why Maness was called on for the save. He induced three ground outs from Brayan Pena, Eugenio Suarez, and Ivan De Jesus, Jr. to end the game. Maness has four saves and a 3.65 ERA on the year, but Rosenthal will handle saves the rest of the way barring unique circumstances such as Wednesday's ballgame. Aug 5 - 11:36 PM

Seth Maness allowed a run but still managed to grab his second save of the season in Monday's victory versus the Cubs.

Maness allowed a two-out solo home run to Addison Russell to cut the Cardinals' lead in half, but he got Dexter Fowler to line out to end the game. As regular closer Trevor Rosenthal had pitched in three consecutive games to open up the month of May, and blew a save on the 3rd, Maness got a rare save chance. The right-hander, with a 3.27 ERA and a 6/0 K/BB ratio in 11 innings, shouldn't see many more save situations the rest of the way.

Seth Maness notched his second big-league save by getting four outs against the Mets on Monday.

Maness entered a 6-2 game in the eighth, but since the tying run was on deck, it was a save situation. As a result, the Cardinals left him in and he was able to get his first save of the year. The sinkerballer has a 2.45 ERA in 29 1/3 innings.

Cardinals purchased the contract of RHP Seth Maness from Triple-A Memphis.

Maness will try to provide some reliable depth for the Cardinals' battered bullpen. The 24-year-old has walked only 18 batters in 247-plus minor league innings.

Seth Maness will be promoted from Triple-A Memphis before Monday's series-opener against the Reds.

Maness has posted an uninspiring 4.32 ERA in 25 innings this season at the Triple-A level, but he throws strikes and should do fine in a middle relief role. The 24-year-old righty had a 2.97 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 112/10 K/BB ratio in 169 2/3 innings (27 starts) last summer between High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield.
