If they don't want to use Duran back to back, I wonder if Jax is an option to close? He does seem to give up a lot of base runners at times though.Pagan got the 8th inning against the bottom of the order and Duran gets their 3-4-5 in the 9th to get his first save. Also interesting to see Jax get the 7th in a 1-run game. He’s looked good so far. Will probably see him more in close games going forward, especially with Duffey struggling.
Also, just saw the attendance: 7,400. Yikes.That is such a great ballpark.
