Vazquez pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to record his 10th save of the year in a 5-4 victory against the Rangers on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
The 27-year-old only needed 11 pitches to retire the side and threw nine strikes, including five swing-and-misses. If owners have any complaints about the lefty, he's allowed a few too many baserunners this year, but this outing lowered his WHIP to 1.20. He is also 10-for-10 in save chances with a 0.54 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 16.2 innings this year.

Vazquez allowed two hits, including a solo home run, but he still recorded his seventh save of the season in a 6-4 extra-inning win against the Rangers on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
The homer, which reached the upper deck, was the first earned run Vazquez has allowed this season. The Rangers hit the dominate left-hander pretty hard, but the three-run cushion and great defensive positioning helped Vazquez move to 7-for-7 in save opportunities. He also has a 0.71 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 12.2 innings this season.

Vazquez gave up one hit and one walk in a scoreless inning against the Dodgers on Friday. He struck out a pair of batters.
EDGE Analysis
With Pittsburgh's losing streak reaching six games, the team simply wanted to keep Vazquez sharp in a 6-2 loss to Los Angeles. He'd pitched in only two games totaling 27 pitches since April 14, when he threw 43 pitches against Detroit. While Vazquez was a bit rusty Friday, he hit 100 mph with his fastball. The lefty has yet to allow an earned run in 11.2 innings in 10 outings, registering one win and six saves.
