LOS ANGELES -- Saturday, for the second time in two nights, a Dodgers reliever struck out four Rockies in the eighth inning. This time, it was Sergio Santos, but he also allowed three runs in the inning for a 6-0 deficit in the Dodgers' eventual 7-1 loss.
On Friday, Kenley Jansen struck out four in a scoreless eighth. Four strikeouts by a pitcher in an inning has only happened seven times in Dodgers history.
"His [Jansen's] was better, because it happened without any runs coming across," Santos said. "It's the second time for me this year -- I had four strikeouts in Spring Training in an inning against the Cubs."
