Tigers' Ausmus: Don't expect many four-out saves from Joakim Soria


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Tigers closer Joakim Soria had a four-out save on Thursday, but manager Brad Ausmus said that won't become a regular occurrence.

Five outs will be an even rarer event. 

"I'd be worried with five that the pitch count might get up, and we wouldn't be able to use him the next day," Ausmus said. "That doesn't mean we wouldn't. Maybe in a situation where you were trying to clinch a playoff spot, or were in the playoffs, you might do it for five outs."
