  • Cubs' Hector Neris: Snags 13th save

    Neris earned the save in Friday's 5-1 victory over the Cardinals, pitching two-thirds of an inning with one strikeout and one walk.

    After rookie Hunter Bigge failed to close out St. Louis with a five-run lead in the ninth, Neris entered with one out and two runners on. He induced a Brendan Donovan lineout before loading the bases with a walk to Nolan Arenado. He then fanned Lars Nootbaar to wrap up the game. Since blowing a save June 17 against San Francisco, Neris has now thrown seven consecutive scoreless outings, collecting three saves and producing 11:3 K:BB over 6.1 innings.

  • Cubs' Hector Neris: Grabs one-out save

    Neris struck out the only batter he faced to earn the save in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Angels.

    Neris was credited with the save after Luke Little loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth inning. Neris struck out Zach Neto on four pitches to end the threat. This is the second stretch of the season in which Neris has avoided giving up a run over five consecutive appearances, with this scoreless streak at 4.1 innings. He has a 9:2 K:BB in that span, and for the season, the closer is up to 12 saves with a 4.06 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 33:22 K:BB across 31 innings.

  • Cubs' Hector Neris: Continues to pitch better

    Neris tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Thursday's 10-2 win over the Phillies. He allowed one hit and struck out two.

    After a rough patch in the middle of June, Neris has now strung together four straight scoreless appearances. That's allowed the veteran reliever to lower his season ERA to a more respectable 4.11. Neris logged a stellar 1.71 ERA across 68.1 innings last year for the Astros, so there is potential for continued improvement in 2024. The better play has also likely kept him locked into the closer role for the time being.

  • Cubs' Hector Neris: Records save Saturday

    Neris earned a save against the Brewers on Saturday, allowing one hit and issuing one walk while striking out two batters over one scoreless inning.

    Neris entered in the ninth inning with Chicago holding a two-run lead and got into a bit of hot water when two of the first three hitters he faced reach base. However, the veteran reliever bounced back to strike out the final two batters of the frame. Neris secured his 11th save of the season and recorded his third straight scoreless outing. That may have helped him steady his grip on the closer role to some extent after he blew two saves and gave up seven earned runs across 2.2 frames over three appearances between June 11 and June 17.

  • Cubs' Hector Neris: Snags seventh win

    Neris (7-2) tossed a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to earn the win in Thursday's 5-3, 10-inning victory over the Giants.

    Neris went through a rough patch earlier this month but has pitched better lately, tossing scoreless innings in consecutive outings with four total strikeouts. The veteran once again didn't see a save opportunity, as that went to Porter Hodge on Thursday, but it was encouraging to see Neris still work in a high-leverage spot. He figures to remain Chicago's closer moving forward, though he could be replaced if his struggles resurface.
