Fernando Rodney, the Arizona D-backs closer, has wasted two saves in his last two appearances at Chase Field. And in a humiliating way. On Wednesday he could not close what ended up being a victory of the Padres and Saturday did the same before the Rockies.
However, manager Torey Lovullo was not ready to announce any kind of move in the bullpen after Colorado scored three times for Rodney in the ninth in Saturday’s game. On Wednesday, the Padres scored five times, with Ryan Schimpf’s three-run homer as the big shot.
