Saturday photos: Bullpen starring in winning streak
The Royals have won five in a row and the bullpen has produced 14.0 scoreless innings over the stretch. Let’s take a look at the three relievers who worked on Saturday:
Danny Duffy had two scoreless innings in the 5-4 win. He has posted 6.1 innings of shutout baseball with KC, with nine strikeouts.
Wade Davis followed with two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 eighth. Wade is averaging 14.46 strikeouts per 9.0 innings, first in the A.L. among pitchers with at least 9.0 innings.
Greg Holland closed the win, striking out two for his sixth save. He leads the A.L. in saves and is tied for the Major League lead entering Sunday.
