Kelvin Herrera notched his 10th save of the season Friday against the Red Sox.
The Royals had a four-run lead going into the bottom of the ninth, so Peter Moylan got the call initially, but he gave up back-to-back singles to begin the inning before Ned Yost turned to Herrera. The hard-throwing right-hander gave up two hits of his own, including an RBI single to Mookie Betts, but he managed to escape and secure the victory for the red-hot Royals. Wade Davis (forearm) is on the comeback trail in the minors, but Herrera has done a fine job filling in at closer. He now boasts a shiny 1.84 ERA and 73/8 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings.
