Rogers pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit while striking out one on his way to a save in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Phillies. Rogers struck out Kyle Schwarber to open the inning before giving up a one-out single to Nick Castellanos, but he was able to get Jean Segura to ground into a double play to end the contest immediately after. The save was Rogers' 14th of the season, tying him with Josh Hader for the most in MLB. After being acquired by San Diego just prior to the season, the left-hander has only one blown save in 15 attempts while producing a sparkling 0.56 ERA and 0.56 WHIP with 18 punchouts over 16 innings in 16 appearances.
Rogers walked one and struck out two over 1.1 scoreless innings to record his 13th save of the season in Friday's 11-6 win over Atlanta. A four-run outburst in the top of the ninth inning gave the Padres a bigger cushion and made Rogers' job easier as he moved into a tie with Josh Hader for the league lead in saves. Rogers has proven to be a huge pickup for San Diego, posting a 0.64 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 15:2 K:BB through his first 14 innings for the club while blowing only one save so far.
Rogers saved Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Cubs, allowing one run on two hits and two hit batters with one strikeout in the ninth inning.

The earned run was the first the 31-year-old has surrendered this season while the four batters that reached base doubled his previous high.
