Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Throws immaculate inning Thursday

Jansen was called upon to convert a four-out save Thursday and he did so in perfect fashion, striking out all four batters en route to his eighth save of the season.

Not only did the dominant closer not allow a batter to reach base Thursday, but he also set the Marlins down in the ninth on nine pitches, all strikes, recording the Dodgers' first immaculate inning in over 21 years. Jansen hasn't been afforded many save opportunities early on, but he has converted every one that has come his way this season. The 29-year-old has struck out 32 batters without issuing a walk over 16 innings, proving why he is one the game's best relievers.
