Kenley Jansen blows save opportunity, takes loss in Game 4 on Saturday

Kenley Jansen took the loss and blew the save on Saturday when he surrendered two runs (one earned) on two hits with a walk and a strikeout in the Dodgers 8-7 loss to the Rays in Game 4 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact:

Jansen entered in the bottom of the ninth inning to protect a one-run Dodgers lead. He was able to get out two of the first three batters he faced with Kevin Kiermaier reaching via a single. Jansen then walked Randy Arozarena, who had homered earlier in the game and took Jansen deep on Friday night, before giving up a two-run game-winning single to Brett Phillips. Chris Taylor mishandled the ball in center field, which allowed Arozarena to score. The series is now tied at 2-2 with a crucial Game 5 looming on Sunday evening.
