Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon blows save on Friday

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon took a blown save, allowing one run (unearned) on one hit while striking out a pair in his inning of work.

Papelbon hadn't blown a save all year, and has now blown two in a row, albeit this one wasn't completely his fault. He allowed a double to Miguel Rojas who advanced to third on a throwing error by Bryce Harper, and would later score on a sacrifice fly making the run unearned. The Nationals came back to win the game in 10 innings, so no harm done, and Papelbon should be fine going forward.
