Manager Buck Showalter is looking for one more middle guy to mix in with his current late-inning formula and got mixed results in two appearances by Triple-A closer Jairo Asencio (pictured). Top prospect Kevin Gausman gave up two runs in a 1 2/3-inning relief appearance before being optioned. The rest of the late-inning crew combined on a sparkling 1.50 ERA in 19 appearances. Jim Johnson continues to add to his major league-leading save total, converting all three of his opportunities to enter the break with 33. Grade: B
