Steve Cishek imploded in the ninth inning on Friday, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk in just 1/3 of an inning, spoiling a brilliant outing by Nathan Eovaldi.

Cishek took over with a 3-0 lead, and promptly allowed a lead-off double to Jason Heyward and walk to Chipper Jones. After striking out Freddie Freeman, he surrendered an RBI single to Dan Uggla and was lifted for Mike Dunn. Dunn proceeded to allow a two-run double to Brian McCann to complete the implosion. He's now blown two of his last five chances and could be at risk of conceding opportunities back to Heath Bell.
