Analysis: Kintzler ranks third in the majors with 28 saves in 32 chances and owns a 2.78 ERA in a season in which he was named an AL All-Star. Whether the ground-ball specialist will continue to serve as a closer in Washington remains to be seen, as the recently acquired Sean Doolittle has performed well in that role since coming over from the A's earlier this month.

Kintzler did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 2.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The wheels are starting to come off for the Twins, and possibly for their closer as well. Kintzler allowed three runs while recording just one out in his previous appearance and had a streak of 12 consecutive save conversions end in this one. He's still recorded six saves this month, so owners probably shouldn't cut bait just yet.
July 23 4:49 PM PT5:49 PM MT6:49 PM CT7:49 PM ET19:49 ET23:49 GMT7:49 4:49 PM MST6:49 PM EST7:19 PM VEN3:49 UAE (+1)6:49 PM CT-Brandon Kintzler allowed three runs on two hits and two walks in 0.1 innings as the Minnesota Twins lost to the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Sunday.
