Luis Garcia earned his first save of the season Sunday in the Phillies' win over the Braves.
Garcia worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning on just nine total pitches, striking out one of the three batters he faced. The 30-year-old right-hander owns a shiny 2.25 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 40 innings this season and could get more save opportunities down the stretch as the Phillies finish out a disappointing 2017 campaign.
