Francisco Rodriguez worked around a two-out walk to earn his 33rd save against the Giants on Tuesday.

Rodriguez walked Hunter Pence with two outs but got Joe Panik to ground out to end the game. He's converted four straight chances since blowing a save in a big way against the Mets, and K-Rod now has 33 saves overall. He's coming off a month in which he had a 6.48 ERA, so it's not all sunshine and roses lately, but it's still been a largely successful year for the 32-year-old.
Aug 5 - 11:43 PM

Francisco Rodriguez earned his 30th save of the season Saturday as the Brewers beat the Mets 5-2.

It was good for K-Rod to get back out there and have some success after blowing a save on Friday night. He yielded a one-out double to Eric Young Jr. but struck out Curtis Granderson and induced a lineout from Daniel Murphy to end it. The Brewers remain three games above the Cardinals at the top of the National League Central standings.
Jul 26 - 10:20 PM

Francisco Rodriguez took the loss Friday against the Mets after blowing his fourth save of the season.

Rodriguez took over in the top of the ninth inning with a 2-0 lead, but he gave up a leadoff double to Daniel Murphy before David Wright followed with an RBI single and Lucas Duda put the Mets in front with a two-run homer. He has now allowed six runs over seven innings of work this month, with his ERA jumping from 2.34 to 3.10 in the process.
Jul 26 - 12:06 AM

Francisco Rodriguez tallied his 27th save of 2014 in Saturday's 7-4 victory over the Rockies.

The dominant run continues for the 32-year-old right-hander, who boasts a 2.34 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 49/9 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings this season. K-Rod struck out two of the three Colorado hitters he faced on Saturday. He's been the top closer in baseball in the first half. The first-place Brewers have won four games in a row.
Jun 28 - 7:48 PM

Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 26th save with a perfect ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

On three pitches, Rodriguez induced a ground out, a fly out, and another ground out to wrap up his league-leading 26th save. The right-hander has blown only two saves and owns a 2.23 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 45/9 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings.
Jun 27 - 12:19 AM

Francisco Rodriguez allowed a solo home run to Wilin Rosario but closed out the Rockies for his 25th save of the season on Sunday.

It was an iffy inning for Rodriguez, as Corey Dickerson was thrown out at home trying for an inside-the-park homer a batter before Rosario's blast. The homers have been one of the only issues in what's been a strong year for the 32-year-old, as he's got a 2.35 ERA and 0.94 WHIP through 38 1/3 innings of work. His 25 saves are best in the National League.
Jun 22 - 9:41 PM

Francisco Rodriguez suffered a minor ankle injury in the ninth inning of Sunday's victory over the Rockies, but expects to be fine on Monday.

The injury occurred during a wild play where Chris Dickerson tripled and fell down as he attempted to stretch it into an inside-the-park home run. K-Rod still managed to complete his inning and rack up his 25th save of the year.
Jun 22 - 9:23 PM

Francisco Rodriguez converted his 20th save with a perfect ninth inning in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

Rodriguez made quick work of the Mets, notching a strikeout in the effort. He becomes baseball's second pitcher to 20 saves this season, joining Sergio Romo. The 32-year-old reliever continues to pitch well, as he now has a 2.01 ERA, a 0.86 WHIP, and a 35/8 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings.
Jun 11 - 10:30 PM

Francisco Rodriguez was called on to record a four-out save in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

With two outs and a runner on third base in the eighth inning, Rodriguez entered to protect a one-run lead. He punched out Russell Martin to end the threat, and despite walking two in the ninth he slammed the door to record his 19th save. The reliever has a 2.08 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 34/8 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings of work.
Jun 8 - 4:50 PM

Francisco Rodriguez worked a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 18th save in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Rodriguez tied Sergio Romo for the MLB lead with his 18th save, recording a strikeout in the effort. The embattled 32-year-old has had a great season for the Brewers, having blown only two saves while compiling a 2.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and a 33/6 K/BB ratio in 29 innings.
Jun 5 - 11:50 PM

Francisco Rodriguez blew his second save of the season Monday against the Orioles.

Rodriguez retired the first two batters he faced before giving up a solo homer to Jonathan Schoop and a game-tying double to Nick Markakis. After tossed 15 scoreless innings in April, K-Rod has allowed seven runs in 10 innings this month. Perhaps all the early work was a bad idea.
May 26 - 6:13 PM

Francisco Rodriguez converted his league-leading 17th save of the season with a scoreless inning in Friday's win over the Cubs.

K-Rod allowed a leadoff single in the ninth while protecting a one-run lead, but he rebounded to retire the next three hitters in order to snuff out the threat. It was a nice bounce-back effort after he allowed three runs his previous time out. Rodriguez's ERA sits at 1.57.
May 16 - 5:56 PM

Francisco Rodriguez allowed three runs in his only inning of work, taking the loss as the Brewers fell to the Pirates 4-1 on Wednesday.

Rodriguez looked untouchable, carrying a spotless 0.00 ERA as recently as four days ago, but he has now allowed runs in two out of his last three outings. The right-hander allowed three hits and a double, turning a 1-1 tie into a 4-1 Pirates lead. Rodriguez still has a very respectable 1.64 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, and 28/4 K/BB ratio in 22 innings, however.
May 14 - 11:31 PM

Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 16th save, and the Brewers beat the Pirates 5-2 on Tuesday.

Rodriguez bounced back from suffering his first blown save on Sunday to retire the Pirates in order, getting Chris Stewart to ground out and Travis Snider to fly out before striking out Jaff Decker. Granted, it wasn't the most dangerous trio of hitters he's ever seen, but a save is a save. The right-hander now owns a 0.43 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 27/4 K/BB ratio, and his 16 saves are the most in the National League.
