Bergen earned the save against the Dodgers on Thursday after recording the final two outs of the ninth inning.

With the Diamondbacks holding on to a three-run lead in the ninth inning, Riley Smith returned to continue his long-relief outing. After recording the first out of the frame, Smith issued a walk, prompting Bergen to get the call in for a lefty matchup against Max Muncy, whom he sat down on strikes. Bergen then finished off the save by forcing Chris Taylor to pop out. The 26-year-old southpaw was recalled from the Diamondbacks' alternate training site Sept. 3 and is expected to take on more of a middle-relief role, though the Arizona bullpen is very much in flux.
