The boxscore of today’s 4-2, 12-inning Dodger victory will show Kenley Jansen getting his ninth save of 2015, but anyone who saw Joc Pederson’s bottom-of-the-ninth catch knows that he’s just as deserving.
For that matter, so is Adrian Gonzalez, who emerged from a flurry of double-play grounders this weekend to drive in the tying run in the eighth inning and the winning runs in the 12th.

For that matter, so is J.P. Howell, Chris Hatcher, Adam Liberatore, Juan Nicasio and Josh Ravin, who with Jansen combined for 7 1/3 innings of shutout relief.
For that matter, so is Andre Ethier, who didn’t score after tripling in the second inning but certainly did after homering in the seventh.

For that matter, Pederson’s first-inning catch of this Matt Kemp drive with one on in the first inning was a save in its own right.

I’d even like to throw a save at newly engaged Mike Bolsinger, who cruised through the first 14 outs and two strikes, before hitting the speed bump that would never stop bumping.
Well done, lads.
