RHP Kenley Jansen was charged with a blown save on Wednesday when he allowed one unearned run with three walks over one inning pitched in the Dodgers 6-5 loss to the Cubs in extra innings.
Jansen entered in the bottom of the 10th inning to protect a one-run lead but walked the first batter he faced then threw a wild pitch. A Joc Pederson sacrifice fly scored the ghost runner and then Jansen intentionally walked the bases loaded to induce an inning-ending double play. This one wasn't really his fault on account of the ghost runner but it goes down as a blown save in the books. His job is safe.
RHP Kenley Jansen was charged with the loss on Monday as he allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit with a walk and a strikeout over one inning in the Dodgers' 5-3 loss to the Reds.
Jansen entered the game in the top of the 10th inning a runner already on second base. It didn't take long for him to cough up the lead as Jesse Winker blasted a two-run shot after just two pitches. He also allowed a walk in the frame but didn't allow anyone else to score. This was Jansen's first loss of the season and it ticked his ERA up to 2.61 to go along with a 1.06 WHIP and 13:8 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings. He should remain the closer in LA moving forward.

The veteran closer is 4-for-5 on save opportunities and now holds a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 10:6 K/BB ratio over eight innings. He's got a firm grip on the closer role for the best team in baseball.
