Casilla tossed a scoreless ninth inning to record his 11th save of the season in Friday's 11-8 win over the Rockies.

Though Casilla had a three-run cushion upon entering the game, the save chance was far from a low-pressure one. The Giants actually held an 11-4 advantage to start the ninth, but Casilla was summoned after Jeremy Affeldt failed to record an out while giving up thee runs. Casilla inherited two runners and allowed one to come around and score on a Ben Paulsen double, but struck out Nick Hundley to end the threat. With a 1.47 ERA and 17 strikeouts over his 18.1 innings, Casilla appears to have plenty of stability in his role as the Giants' closer.

Casilla picked up his seventh save of the season in the flukiest manner possible, recording his only out on a Matt Joyce would-be game-tying line drive that made contact with pinch-runner Taylor Featherston as he rounded the bases.

Joe Panik may have snagged Joyce's shot to get the out anyway, but fantasy players with shares in Casilla don't really care how narrow the escape was, just so long as he got the save. He's not an elite closer by any means, but so far this season Casilla has been worth the investment.
