Herrera struck out one, ending the game with a 3.00 ERA and 0.78 WHIP on the season.
Apr. 14 11:08 AM PT12:08 PM MT1:08 PM CT2:08 PM ET14:08 ET18:08 GMT2:08 11:08 AM MST1:08 PM EST1:38 PM VEN22:08 UAE1:08 PM CT-Herrera notched his first save of the season despite surrendering a solo home run in the ninth inning of Thursday's 3-1 win over Oakland.
Analysis: Herrera has been a bit shaky in the closer's role so far, as he blew his other save chance by giving up a game-tying homer to Houston's Jake Marisnick on Sunday. Of equal concern is the hard-throwing righty's lack of strikeouts, as he's fanned just one batter in three innings of work.

Analysis: Herrera, a second-year arbitration-eligible player, will serve as Kansas City's closer following the team's trade of Wade Davis to the Cubs. The hard-throwing 27-year-old saved 12 games with Davis on the disabled list for part of last season and finished with a 2.75 ERA and a career-high 86 strikeouts in 72 innings.
