PITTSBURGH – Something kind of got lost amongst the smoke and haze that surrounded the Pittsburgh Pirates’ sweep of the San Diego Padres this week at PNC Park.
Roansy Contreras recorded his first major-league save Tuesday night when he closed out the Pirates’ 9-4 victory in the opener of the three-game series.
Contreras pitched three scoreless innings. He allowed two hits while striking out three and walking one.
In many ways, it was the best that Contreras has looked since he was removed from the rotation after getting rocked for seven runs in 0.1 of an inning on June 7 in a loss to the Oakland Athletics.
