As Wieters said:
"Koji is fine. That’s always going to happen as a closer. You’re not going to close every game. Even their guy, probably the best in the game, doesn’t get every save that he goes out there for. He got behind 2-0 and Swisher was looking heater and he got it and was able to put a good swing on it. That’s tough to do. Not too many guys square up Koji’s heater that often. You have to tip your hat to him."
We'll have to see how he does next save opportunity. Though I am still an advocate for letting Gonzo close in September so that he is back into closing vs. the AL East for next season.
