PHILS CLOSER JEFF HOFFMAN — 9 SAVES, 1.17 ERA, WATCH!

By Sally Hanson

Jeff Hoffman closed out the Dodgers in the ninth inning, protecting a one-run lead for his ninth save of the season.

Jose Alvarado worked the eighth inning and first-time All-Star Hoffman got Chris Taylor on strikes, Gavin Lux on a pop up to shortstop and Will Smith on a fly ball to right to end it.

The 31-year-old right-hander now boasts a 1.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and a 48/8 K/BB ratio across 38 1/3 innings on the season.
