Logan Forsythe II
Kenley Jansen committed his first (and only!) blown save of 2017 against Matt Kemp and, his former team, the Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers watched as their 4-1 lead eroded and the ballgame was tied after nine. The outcome would have to be decided in extra innings.
Another familiar name from recent Dodgers history was pitching for Atlanta on Sunday, July 23. In the bottom of the tenth, Jim Johnson had pitched himself into a jam with bases loaded and one out. Logan Forsythe was at bat for LA facing a one-ball and no-strike count. Forsythe cracked a ground ball to center through the middle infield gap. Corey Seager scored the winning run on Forsythe’s game winning RBI and the Dodgers’ earned an amazing seventh walk-off win.
