West Australian Liam Hendriks converted save opportunities in both games of the Chicago White Sox doubleheader sweep of Baltimore on Sunday morning.
Hendriks became the first White Sox pitcher to earn a save in both games of a doubleheader since Bobby Jenks on September 4, 2010, at Boston.
He shut the door with a scoreless inning in a 7-4 game one win, striking out DJ Stewart and Cedric Mullins ahead of getting Freddy Galvis to pop out to finish the Orioles off on 14 pitches.
Hendriks returned a few hours later and struck out the side to close out a 3-1 win with another scoreless frame as the White Sox improved to 11 games above .500.
He punched out Ryan McKenna before again getting Mullins and Galvis out.
Hendriks reduced his season ERA to 2.14 following the pair of strong outings and took his tally to 12 saves in his first season with the White Sox.
