Joe Kelly picked up the save on Wednesday when he walked two batters over 1/3 of an inning in the Dodgers 6-5 victory over the Padres in Game 2 of the NLDS.
Kenley Jansen started the ninth inning, protecting a three-run lead, and quickly made a mess of things by allowing a single, a double, and another single. He managed to get two outs but also gave up two runs. Kelly came into to clean up the mess with a runner on first and walked Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado before getting Eric Hosmer to ground out with the bases loaded. The Dodgers are now one win away from advancing to their fourth NLCS in the last five years.
Joe Kelly will start on Wednesday against the A's.
Julio Urias had been scheduled to start but it now sounds as if he'll be the "follower."
