    Hicks worked a perfect ninth inning in a non-save situation during Monday's win over Miami.

    Impact

    Hicks needed just seven pitches to make quick work of Miami's 4-6 hitters by forcing three straight groundouts. The flame-throwing closer lowered his ERA to 3.33 with 27 strikeouts in 24.1 innings. He's also 14-for-15 in save chances with a tight grip on St. Louis' closing job.

    Hicks allowed a hit and struck out two batters in a scoreless inning to earn the save against Miami on Monday.

    Impact

    Hicks worked around a leadoff single by forcing a groundout before striking out the final two batters of the evening. The flame-throwing closer is now 13-of-14 in save chances this season with a 3.63 ERA and 27:11 K:BB.

    Hicks struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to pick up the save Thursday against the Reds.

    Impact

    Hicks didn't have much trouble slamming the door in this one, as he required just 13 pitches to retire the side in order. He was yanked early from his last save chance after surrendering a run against the Cubs on Sunday, but his skipper evidently still has confidence in him with the game on the line. The 22-year-old right-hander owns a 3.80 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 21.1 innings this season.

    Hicks was removed from Sunday's save opportunity against the Cubs with one out and two batters on, with John Gant coming in to get the last two outs to get the save, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Though Hicks didn't get a chance to finish the inning, it doesn't appear that a role change is necessarily coming, judging from manager Mike Shildt's quote after the game. "Johnny has done a nice job for us," Shildt said. "Jordan will be fine. Couple of nights -- two days in a row and a day off, maybe not as sharp. Wanted to get a different look." As Shildt alluded, Hicks pitched both Thursday and Friday, including two innings Friday.

    News

    Hicks (2-2) picked up the win in Friday's 2-1 extra-inning victory over the Cubs, walking two and striking out two over two scoreless innings of relief.

    Impact

    The St. Louis closer worked a clean ninth and 10th inning, and was rewarded when Matt Carpenter dropped a bases-loaded hit into the left-field corner in the bottom of the final frame. Hicks now sports a 3.60 ERA and 23:10 K:BB through 20 innings, and he's 11-for-12 in save situations.
