Tyler Clippard earns win in 16-inning game Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/14) Nationals pitcher Tyler Clippard earned his fifth win of the year Tuesday, pitching a scoreless 15th inning despite giving up a hit and a walk in his team's 4-2, 16-inning victory over the Brewers.
Clippard (5-2) failed to face the minimum for the first time in five appearances, but he did well enough to send the game into the top of the 16th still tied before the offense took the lead. He owns a 2.06 ERA and 45:16 K:BB ratio in 35 innings.
Tyler Clippard strikes out side for first save Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/14) Nationals pitcher Tyler Clippard picked up his first save Monday after striking out the side in the ninth inning to finish off his team's 3-0 win over the Brewers.
With closer Rafael Soriano resting after pitching three straight days, Clippard came in and got all three batters he faced to strike out swinging, though it took him 22 pitches to do it. He owns a 2.12 ERA and 45:15 K:BB ratio in 34 innings.
Tyler Clippard earns team-high fourth win
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/14) Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard continues to vulture wins out of the bullpen, as he picked up his fourth of the season in a 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
The Nationals' offense lay dormant for much of Wednesday's game, scoring just once in the first eight innings of work. Following CLippard's scoreless eighth inning, however, they erupted for four runs to get him the win. Clippard struck out two batters in his perfect inning of work.
Clippard is now 4-2 with a 2.08 ERA, ranking eighth in the National League in wins, and leading the team. He also ranks third in the National League with eight holds.
|Tyler Clippard came through for the Nationals in 2012, when Drew Storen missed half the season due to injury, recording a career-high 32 saves and holding onto the closer's role until faltering late in the season. Unfortunately, the Nationals didn't turn back to Clippard as the closer in 2013, instead signing Rafael Soriano to a two-year deal. Clippard wasn't fazed by being passed over for the closer's role, going 6-3 with a 2.41 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 72 appearances last season. He also had a team-high 33 holds, which was also tied for the second-most in the majors. Although last season was the first time in five years Clippard didn't have a strikeout rate of at least 10.0 batters per nine innings, he still had an impressive 9.3 mark. Clippard is a solid setup reliever, and he's worth a look in Rotisserie formats and leagues that reward for holds.
