He's 31-for-34 in save chances and should be near the top of the AL saves leaderboard at the end of the season.

But the ninth started with Mike Trout, who walked, and it only got worse from there. Albert Pujols drove in Trout with a double, Josh Hamilton singled, and Howie Kendrick was intentionally walked to load the bases. Rodney appeared to be on his way out of the jam, getting David Freese to ground into a double play. After intentionally walking Efren Navarro, Rodney allowed a walk-off single to center to Grant Green. Rodney is now 27-for-30 in save chances with a 2.33 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 44/16 K/BB ratio.

His 21 saves are most in the American League, and he owns a 2.08 ERA and 1.25 WHIP through 30 1/3 innings. There will likely be plenty more arrows fired in Seattle before the season is through.
