LOS ANGELES – Twice in the past four days, the Dodgers have been three outs away from scooping first place in the National League West for the first time since April, and put their hopes in the hands of their all-star -worthy But All-Star snubbed closer.

Kenley Jansen’s anger at being excluded from the NL All-Star Team has not borne itself well. Jansen gave up a two-run home run against Wilmer Flores in the ninth inning on Wednesday night and suffered his second save in two games since break, and the Dodgers lost 4-2 to the San Francisco Giants.

« I didn’t do my job today. That’s pretty much it, ”said Jansen. “You caught me today. We’ll move forward and be better tomorrow. ”

Jansen only knocked out one of the six thugs he faced in the ninth inning, and let the home crowd cheer with the booing crowd.

It was not the first time in the last few seasons that the franchise’s all-time saves leader was treated so rudely by home fans – despite his years of service and a success rate of 88.6 percent (333 saves versus 43 Missed throws in 12 seasons on the high wire of baseball). .

« It does, » said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts when asked if he minded hearing Jansen booed by the home fans. “This guy is a lifelong dodger. To begin with, fans certainly have a right to express their frustration. Absolutely. I get it. But I believe that this guy who was born and raised a Dodger … doesn’t hurt anyone more than him, to be honest.

« He worked very hard to come back and should have become an All-Star this year. He’s had a fantastic season. The other day (Sunday in Colorado) there was a hiccup. … He was looking forward to pitching at home. That this is not going well – yes, I am disappointed to hear that for sure. He won’t say it. But I am. »

Roberts also shared his feelings with home plate referee Andy Fletcher and was thrown in the ninth inning after Victor Gonzalez led Curt Casali to a run.

« I just felt like the low blow was being shouted all night long, in both directions, » said Roberts. « In a big place like this … the consistency we all hope for – it just wasn’t compatible with the night. »

Ball four for Casali could just have been the trigger that exaggerated Roberts’ frustration after wasting the kind of pitching starting effort from Julio Urias that the Dodgers had cobbled together spares for the past two nights.

« We’re all frustrated when you have a game in hand and don’t win it too late, » said Roberts. “But nobody is more frustrated than Kenley. He expects a lot from himself. We just have to keep going, getting in position to win a baseball game. We have Walker (Buehler) at the start tomorrow, a new bullpen and we have to find a way to save the series.  »

Urias gave up a solo home run to Mike Yastrzemski with two outs in the first inning.

Urias withdrew 18 of the next 21 thugs he faced. After Cody Bellinger slid Austin Slater’s sinking liner into midfield to end the third inning, the Giants didn’t even get another ball from the infield against Urias in his seven innings.

« It’s hard to see how he turns seven and ultimately loses the game, » said Roberts. « But as for Julio – excellent. »

Chris Taylor continued his hot streak, modifying Yastrzemski’s first inning homerun with one of his own – his third straight at-bat with a homerun (a rally sparking walk was also interfered with).

Immersed in a deep, season-long slump, Bellinger proved his worth with both his legs and glove, kicking off first base on a two-out double to AJ’s right field in the fourth inning Pollock. But the Dodgers’ offense took the rest of the night off. The last 13 Dodgers batter went down in turn.

The Giants got the tie run on the base when Buster Posey led the ninth inning with a pinch-hit single from Jansen. A 1-and-1 cutter for Flores stayed over the heart of the record and he beat them for the Giants’ eighth homer in that series and the 144 to take the MLB lead).

« I just have to go and see tomorrow, see what it was, » said Jansen of performing a failed autopsy. “It’s just bad. I don’t want to overthink it. I’m working my bum too hard for a moment like this to mess up your season. No time to think.

“These guys will play so hard against us for the rest of the year. We have to keep fighting. I have to be out there and be better. That’s pretty much it. Get the last three outs. As I said, I’m not thinking about it. Shake that off and we’ll be back on the horse tomorrow.
