LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen had not given up a run in three straight games in his career before Friday night's series opener against the Mets at Dodger Stadium, which the Dodgers lost, 2-1.
He entered the game with a 1.53 ERA and 0.509 WHIP, and he hadn't lost a game since last June. And prior to the ninth inning Friday, the Mets had managed just 24 runs in their last 15 games -- including a seven-run outburst last Sunday.
