Raisel Iglesias notches his 20th save in Atlanta’s win. (+ Cuban MLB Report)

After striking out the side in the ninth inning Raisel Iglesias notched in 20th save of the season to preserve Atlanta’s 8-6 win over Milwaukee. The hurler from the Isle of Youth has fanned 41 in 31 ⅔ innings and has also saved five games in his last seven appearances.

Yennier Cano continues to have an impressive season. In yesterday’s 9-3 thrashing of the Yankees by Baltimore the right-hander from Ciego de Ávila, Cuba struck out the side as well. Cano watched his ERA descend to 3.76 on the season and has proven to be a key component to the Orioles’ bullpen this season.

Yuli Gurriel collected two hits in four trips to the plate, knocked in a run and also scored on occasion to do his part in Miami’s 8-6 victory over the Tigers. The first baseman drove in his 20th run of the season and is hitting .268 in his last 15 games.
