Valverde pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his fourth save of the season and preserve the Tigers 2-1 win over the Rangers on Friday. He gave up no hits, walked one and did not strike anyone out.
Valverde made it quick and kept it relatively drama-free. The walk he issued came with one out and he then induced a pair of ground outs to finish things off. Valverde lowered his ERA to 1.13 and has a 7:4 K:BB over eight innings this season.
