Jansen worked around a hit and a walk in recording his 14th save Monday against the Phillies.

He did strike out a pair, and after allowing runs in three consecutive games, it was good to see a zero in the "ER" column for Jansen in this one. He sports a strong 34:2 K:BB in 19.2 innings, so he should be fine going forward.

Jansen (2-1) took his first loss of the season Friday, giving up two hits and a run in a non-save situation against the Mets.

With the game tied 1-1, Jansen opened the ninth inning by giving up a leadoff double to Lucas Duda, followed by an infield hit and a sacrifice fly to score the winning run. He then settled down and finished the inning with a pair of strikeouts, but the damage had already been done. Jansen has now been tagged for a run in each of his last three outings after giving up just one in his first 16, so he may be hitting a bit of fatigue here -- he's appeared in seven games over the last 10 days.

Jansen (1-0) blew the save by giving up a ninth inning home run against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, but he picked up the win as the Dodgers scored a run in the bottom of the ninth.
