News: Allen struck out two and walked one while holding the White Sox scoreless to earn his second save of the season Wednesday.
Impact: He finished off Jose Abreu with a nasty breaking ball to end the White Sox's late threat Wednesday. The appearance was Allen's first since a four-run drubbing from the Tigers on Saturday, and he should be pretty firmly entrenched as the closer in Cleveland at this point.

News: Allen struck out two in a perfect ninth to earn his first save of the season Wednesday against the Astros.
Impact: Allen is locked in as Cleveland's closer, and he'll continue to pick up the save opportunities for the Indians, as he has no legitimate threat to his job.
