Corey Knebel has been money. He hasn't given up an ER since July 19th.  His BB/9 of 5.11 is still high, but he hasn't walked two batters in one inning since July 9th. 15.5 K/9 and a 0.48 HR/9. He's a top 5 closer, no doubt about it.

 

That's not even the most impressive thing. He has pitched in 56 games this season. He has only had ONE appearance where he didn't strike out at least one batter. That's nearly unheard of.

Diaz walks 3 straight hitters in a 3 run game to get to Machado

 

bold strategy

Saved by a web gem by Martin for first out.  This guy is SAD!

Diaz is garbage. Three consecutive walks?

34 pitches and counting.  Even if he gets out of this will he even be available tomorrow?

not a closer but Maurer is trash and should never been a closer for any team

Padres don't count as a team so I guess we're still good there?

They're off tomorrow. But holy cow that was ugly. All over the place. But if Rzycepcynski gets this out he gets a Hold!
