Osuna gave up a run on two hits and a walk in an inning of relief Saturday but still recorded his 20th save of the season in a 7-6 extra-innings win over the Rangers.
The Astros scored twice in the top of the 11th inning, and they needed both of them after Osuna gave up a run for the second straight appearance coming out of the All-Star break. The right-hander still has solid numbers on the year, posting a 2.33 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 40:8 K:BB through 38.2 innings while converting 20 of 23 save chances, and barring a complete collapse his hold on the closer role appears secure.
Osuna (3-2) was saddled with the loss Friday, allowing a run on two hits and one walk while striking out one against the Rangers.
Osuna entered in the ninth inning with the game tied at eight apiece and could not deliver the extra innings the Astros needed to pull this one out. This was the first run Osuna's allowed in 16 appearances in a non-save situation.
Osuna struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 19th save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Rockies.
The young closer already has more saves in July (two) than he did in all of June (one). Osuna lowered his ERA to an even 2.00 with Wednesday's performance, and his 38:4 K:BB through 36 innings remains sharp.
Osuna gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his 18th save of the season in a 9-8 win over the Rockies.
The right-hander only managed to convert one of his three save chances during the month of June in eight appearances despite a 2.35 ERA, but Osuna got July off on the right foot. On the season, he still sports a sharp 2.06 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 36:4 K:BB through 35 frames.
