Mills (1-0) picked up the win Monday against the Reds, tossing two scoreless innings in relief. He allowed one hit and struck out three.
Mills has given the Cubs some valuable innings lately and picked up a few milestones to boot, as he earned his first MLB save by covering three innings Friday. He followed that up by recording his first MLB win with his two scoreless innings Monday. With Chicago pushing for a playoff spot, Mills has been a solid contributor in September with just one earned run allowed across six innings to go with nine strikeouts.
Mills recorded the save in Friday's 18-7 win over the Pirates, tossing three innings of one-run ball. He allowed two hits while striking out four.
Mills had a comfortable lead to work with, but he looked sharp nonetheless and he efficiently worked through his three innings on 40 pitches (29 strikes), picking up his first MLB save and saving some other Chicago relievers from working in the process. The 27-year-old righty, who has been up and down from the minors this season, has a 3.70 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 24.1 innings at the MLB level this year.
Mills was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.
Mills will join the Cubs as part of the September roster expansion. The 27-year-old performed well during his brief time in the majors this season with a 3.98 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB over 20.1 innings.
