Soria (2-4) was credited with his second victory in a win over the Angels on Wednesday, firing a perfect eighth inning in which he did not record a strikeout.
Soria got through his one frame on 11 pitches, keeping the Athletics' deficit at 2-1. He was ultimately rewarded for his strong work when Matt Chapman slugged a homer in the top of the ninth to give Oakland a lead it wouldn't relinquish. The unblemished performance extended Soria's month-long scoreless streak to seven appearances and lowered an ERA that sat at 4.94 on Aug. 22 down to 4.37. Sep 26 3:21 pm (EST)
- Soria recorded his 20th hold in a win over the Royals on Tuesday by firing a perfect eighth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts, his second straight scoreless effort since returning from time off due to an elbow issue.
- Soria hasn't made a relief appearance since Sept. 6 due to an elbow issue but was cleared to play catch prior to Sunday's game against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
- Soria earned the save against the Yankees on Thursday, pitching one inning and giving up one run on one hit while striking out two. All Joakim Soria (R) News
