RHP Kenley Jansen blew the save and took the loss on Wednesday when he allowed three runs on three hits while walking two and striking out one in the Dodgers' 4-2 loss to the Giants.
Jansen was tasked with protecting a 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth inning but was unable to get the job done. He served up a single to Buster Posey and a go-ahead two-run homer to Wilmer Flores in the next at-bat. He recorded a strikeout before loading the bases with a double and back-to-back walks. He was replaced by Victor Gonzalez who would walk an inherited runner home. Jansen had blown just two saves all season leading up to the All-Star break but has now blown back-to-back chances. The closer job should remain his for now but he's looked very shaky lately.
