Oh Seung-hwan of the St. Louis Cardinals has picked up his 17th save of the 2017 season.
Oh tossed a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Miami Marlins to seal the Cardinals 4-3 victory at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Thursday (local time). This was Oh's first save since June 21 when he pitched against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Oh then intentionally walked Justin Bour, who launched a solo shot against the right-hander the previous day. With runners on first and second base, Oh got Martin Prado to strike out swinging on a 93.9 mph four-seam fastball to close the game.
Oh lowered his ERA from 3.72 to 3.63 with his latest performance. (Yonhap)
