Rodriguez served up a solo homer to Matt Kemp, but held on for his 38th save of the season Saturday.

Home runs continues to be an issue for Rodriguez, who has now surrendered nine in his last 36 frames. The Brewers have made no indication that his job is in any danger, so Rodriguez will continue to be the preferred ninth-inning option barring a surprising waiver-trade acquisition prior to the August 31 deadline.

Rodriguez allowed a pair of baserunners, but tossed a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 35th save of the season Saturday night.

A walk followed by a blooper that landed just beyond the range of second baseman Scooter Gennett enabled the Dodgers to send the tying run to the plate, but Rodriguez shut the door by getting Matt Kemp to ground out to end the game. Barring an addition prior to the waiver trade deadline, Rodriguez should remain the Brewers' closer for the rest of the season despite a few hiccups throughout the past two months.
