Trevor Rosenthal absolutely bombed in the ninth inning of Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Brewers, allowing four runs on two hits without recording an out in the ninth inning.

Rosenthal entered the proceedings with the Cardinals holding a 3-1 lead. He proceeded to absolutely light the field on fire, putting the first three runners on base before surrendering a grand slam to the pinch-hitting Jason Rogers before being relieved of duty. After allowing just one homer over 66 2/3 innings prior to this series against the Brewers, Rosenthal's given up two bombs in the last three days. Despite the little tough stretch, he still holds a 2.13 ERA and 82/24 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings. He's now 47-for-50 in save chances.

Trevor Rosenthal notched his 40th save of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

Rosenthal came on looking to secure the win for John Lackey. He struck out Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta to open the ninth inning, but followed those two strikeouts with a walk to Aaron Hill, bringing the tying run to the plate in the form of Jake Lamb. Rosenthal then bared down to induce a fly out from Lamb to end the game. The 25-year-old has been among the best closers in baseball this season, converting 40-of-42 opportunities while holding a 1.54 ERA and 66/20 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings. He's tied with Pirates closer Mark Melancon for the major league saves lead.

Kevin Siegrist is the best bet to get save opportunities during Rosenthal's absence, so save-needy owners should take a flier on the southpaw while the closer is away.
