Dellin Betances continued his impressive season on Sunday, recording the final four outs of the game to pick up his second save of the season.
Betances needed only 16 pitches to retire the final four batters, racking up three strikeouts on the way to a 3-2 New York victory.
The 29-year old, who recently took over as the Yankees' closer with Aroldis Chapman on the DL, has not surrendered an earned run since April 8.
Betances has allowed just two runs, and only one earned, on seven hits in 13 2/3 innings this season. He has added 25 strikeouts to go along with nine walks.
After losing a contentious arbitration hearing in February, there was some question as to how Betances would handle the situation this season. He's been a model teammate and his performance on the mound has been tremendous thus far.
Betances, feeling slighted by Yankees' president Randy Levine's comments following the hearing, made an off-hand retaliatory comment suggesting he might not be able to pitch in extended appearances this season. He was summoned in the second such circumstance Sunday and nailed down a four-out save, helping the Yankees avoid a sweep in Tampa.
Betances has dominated opponents since his second appearance of the season in which he allowed his only earned run. In Betances' last 14 games, he has not allowed a single earned run and has struck out 24 batters in 12 1/3 innings.
Betances will be the Yankees' closer for at least another few weeks with Chapman on the disabled list. If Betances continues to shut down the opposition during that time he'll make a strong case to turn the tide in his next arbitration hearing.
