No pitcher in baseball history can do better than three strikeouts in nine pitches. Santiago Casilla did just that to get a save in a game in Cincinnati in 2015. Casilla could be unhittable at times and he certainly was on this day. So many times, Giants fans would get frustrated with Casilla and previous closers like Romo and Wilson for seeming to put fans through so much torture in the ninth inning. However, Casilla more often than not actually just did his job. On this day, he did it as well as he possibly could.
