Collins confident in Familia

7/24/2014

MILWAUKEE -- Jeurys Familia is 2-3 with a 1.92 ERA and a save in 49 games, including 12 that he finished. The right-hander has allowed 40 hits, but only one is a home run. He’s allowed one earned run in his last 19 games dating to June 12 and has tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits since July 6.

“One thing that you feel confident about, they might hit him, but because of the movement [on the ball], I don’t think they’re going to hit a homer,” Collins said. “Therefore, I feel pretty good about the fact that if they get a hit, they might get a single, but most likely it hit on the ground.”
