Seranthony Dominguez is saving the Phillies' bullpen, which ranks 17th in MLB with a 3.91 ERA and 24th with a 4.85 ERA over the last month. Since he was called up to the big leagues on May 7th, Dominguez has appeared in 13 of the team's 16 wins.

Dominguez's teammate Tommy Hunter spoke emphatically about the 23-year-old's ability after Tuesday's win. 

“You go to the [expletive] postseason. That’s what happens when you have a guy like Seranthony Dominguez on your team," Hunter told The Athletic. "I don’t want to put pressure on anyone or anything like that, but he is a [expletive] one-in-a-million type of player.”

Dominguez, despite throwing 41 pitches in 2.0 innings of work on Sunday, was forced to enter the game in a bases-loaded no-out jam in the 9th on Tuesday. He allowed just one hit and the Phils escaped with a 5-4 win.
