  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures 32nd save

    Sewald picked up the save in Saturday's win over the Cubs, allowing one unearned run on one hit over one inning. He did not record any strikeouts or walks.

    Sewald entered the game with a two-run lead in the bottom of the 10th and retired the first two batters before giving up an RBI single to Cody Bellinger to cut the lead to one run. The right-hander then got Dansby Swanson to foul out for the final out of the game, giving Sewald his fourth save this month. He's now converted 11 of his last 12 save opportunities, though he's failed to record a strikeout in three straight appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Records one-out save

    Sewald retired the only batter he faced to register a save against the Cubs on Thursday.

    Arizona led 6-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth frame, so it didn't look like Sewald would be needed. However, the Cubs scored a run on three hits to put the potential tying run in the on-deck circle with two outs, resulting in the closer getting the call. Sewald got Seiya Suzuki to ground out to end the contest and walk away with a save without needing to work up much of a sweat. It was Sewald's third save in September and his 31st overall this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Escapes with save

    Sewald allowed a run on one hit and a walk in one inning but still earned a save over the Rockies on Monday.

    Sewald needed 26 pitches to finish off the win and pick up his 30th save of the year. Since joining the Diamondbacks, he's registered a 4.63 ERA, driving his season ERA to 3.29 through 54.2 frames. On the bright side, he's given up just three runs over his last 10.2 innings while converting nine of his last 10 save chances.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures save Friday

    Sewald allowed a hit and struck out two over one scoreless inning to earn the save in Friday's 4-2 win over the Orioles.

    Sewald had a couple of rough outings in August, but he's mostly been steady since he was acquired from the Mariners. The right-hander threw 16 pitches (11 strikes) in Friday's outing, his first action since a blown save last Saturday. For the season, he's 29-for-34 in save chances while posting a 3.19 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 74:21 K:BB through 53.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Blows save Saturday

    Sewald gave up two runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning, taking a blown save in Saturday's 8-7 extra-innings loss to the Reds.

    Sewald has mostly danced around danger effectively since he was traded from Seattle, but he couldn't do it Saturday. A Tyler Stephenson RBI double and a Matt McLain groundout produced the pair of runs on Sewald's line in his second blown save in nine chances with the Diamondbacks. He's now at a 3.25 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 72:21 K:BB through 52.2 innings on the year while converting 28 of 33 save chances.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Picks up 28th save

    Sewald recorded a save against Cincinnati on Thursday, issuing one walk and striking out two batters over one scoreless inning.

    Sewald came on in the top of the ninth frame with Arizona holding a tenuous one-run lead. He issued a free pass with one out but retired the next two batters to seal the deal. Sewald blew his first save opportunity with Arizona on Aug. 6 but has gone a perfect 7-for-7 since, posting eight scoreless innings and a 9:5 K:BB over that span.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Escapes trouble Tuesday

    Sewald allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    Sewald again flirted with danger, allowing multiple baserunners for the fourth time in nine outings since he joined the Diamondbacks. He's only paid for it once in a blown save versus the Twins on Aug. 6 -- he's kept runs off the board in his other eight appearances. Sewald is at a 3.00 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 70:19 K:BB with 27 saves in 31 chances over 51 innings this year. He'll need to cut back on the traffic on the basepaths to continue to turn in strong results as the Arizona closer.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures 26th save

    Sewald recorded his 26th save of the season in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of the Padres, walking two batters in a scoreless ninth inning.

    The outing was very nearly a disaster for the former Mariner. Sewald also hit Garrett Cooper with a pitch, loading the bases with two outs, but Juan Soto's drive to left-center field died on the warning track rather than clearing the fence for a walk-off grand slam. Sewald's converted five straight save chances after blowing his first one for Arizona following his acquisition at the trade deadline, but he's been far from impressive for his new club with a 4.50 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB through six innings. Barring a complete collapse, however, his spot in the ninth inning appears secure.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Unavailable for save

    Sewald was not available to pitch Thursday when Justin Martinez notched the save in a 3-1 win over San Diego.

    Neither Sewald nor Kevin Ginkel were available to close things out for the Diamondbacks, so manager Torey Lovullo had Martinez get the final four outs. Sewald and Ginkel had each pitched four times in the prior five days.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Strikes out two for 25th save

    Sewald picked up the save Wednesday against Colorado, allowing one hit while striking out two over a scoreless inning.

    Sewald entered the game with a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth and allowed a leadoff single to Charlie Blackmon before retiring the next three batters, two of which went down swinging. The veteran reliever has now converted each of his last four save opportunities, racking up five strikeouts to only one walk over that scoreless stretch. He has, however, allowed a total of four hits over his last two appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Escapes with save

    Sewald picked up the save in Tuesday's 8-5 win over the Rockies. He allowed three hits and struck out one over a scoreless inning.

    Though Sewald got himself into a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the ninth, he managed to retire Charlie Blackmon and Ezequiel Tovar to cap off his third save as a Diamondback and the 24th of the 2023 campaign. After being rocked for three runs and two home runs in his first appearance with Arizona, Sewald has bounced back with three straight scoreless innings and has converted on all three save attempts during that span. On the year, Sewald owns a 3.26 ERA and a 66:16 K:BB through 47 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Second save in as many days

    Sewald walked one and struck out one in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Padres.

    After picking up just two appearances -- and blowing a save chance in one of them -- Sewald pitched on consecutive days to earn a pair of saves this weekend. The right-hander is 23-for-27 in save chances between Arizona and Seattle this year, though the Diamondbacks' poor play of late has limited his opportunities to close out games with his new team. He's at a 3.33 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 65:16 K:BB through 46 innings overall.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Notches first save as Diamondback

    Sewald earned a save over San Diego on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter over one inning.

    Sewald was acquired by Arizona at the trade deadline to take over as the closer, but he had garnered only one save opportunity prior to Saturday, as the Diamondbacks had stumbled to nine straight losses since he reported to the team. The right-hander got the chance to help end that slide against the Padres, and he came through with a scoreless frame to pick up the save. Sewald tossed 11 of 12 pitches for strikes in the outing and allowed just a harmless single to Juan Soto. He's locked into the ninth-inning role, but his save opportunities could be limited if the Diamondbacks aren't able to reverse their recent rough stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Allows two home runs Sunday

    Sewald (3-2) was charged with the loss and a blown save after allowing three runs on two hits and a walk while failing to record an out in the ninth inning against the Twins on Sunday.

    Sewald had a nightmare outing in just his second appearance since being acquired by the Diamondbacks. Max Kepler led off the ninth with a home run to tie up the game. Sewald then walked Jorge Polanco before Matt Wallner crushed a fastball to walk it off for the Twins. It was a dramatic meltdown for Sewald, who had given up just one run over his prior 10 appearances, but he'll remain the closer unless his struggles persist across multiple outings.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Makes D-backs debut

    Sewald struck out three over a scoreless seventh inning in Saturday's 12-1 loss to the Twins.

    Sewald, the closer Arizona acquired at the trade deadline, made his debut for his new organization, entering in the seventh inning of a 10-1 game. Because of the Diamondbacks' slump -- they've lost five straight since the trade -- there have been no save opportunities for Sewald. Despite seven days between outings, the right-hander was sharp, throwing nine of 12 pitches for strikes.
