Hendriks (4-4) allowed two runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning while blowing the save and taking the loss Friday against Seattle. He struck out one batter.
This wasn't the Hendriks we've grown accustomed to seeing; after retiring the first batter he faced, Hendriks uncorked a couple wild pitches and gave up three base knocks to lose the game. It was his second blown save in six appearances and seventh of the season, but he's been outstanding outside of those few hiccups. He sits with the second-lowest FIP among all qualified relievers this season (1.79), behind only Kirby Yates.

It may sound easy enough, but the right-hander came into a home run derby of a game that included 10 long balls.

The All-Star had blown saves in three of his last four appearances, but he was able to bounce back with a clean effort in this contest and pick up his 10th save of the season in 14 opportunities.

For the second straight game, Hendriks was summoned to protect a lead in the eighth inning and was unable to close the door. He gave up a game-tying single to the first batter he faced, then served up a solo home run to Eric Thames in the ninth inning after Oakland had recaptured the lead in the bottom of the eighth. Hendriks has now blown three of his last four save opportunities, and with former closer Blake Treinen pitching well to pick up the win in two of those games, there may be some thought given to reversing their roles.
Hendriks was charged with his third blown save in Sunday's win over the Rangers, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.
Hendriks got the call early Sunday, inheriting a one-on, one-out scenario in the eighth and the Athletics clinging to a two-run lead. The normally reliable closer proceeded to surrender run-scoring hits to Nomar Mazara and Willie Calhoun, as well as an RBI groundout to Asdrubal Cabrera. Two of Hendriks' three blown saves for the season have come in his last three appearances, and with former closer Blake Treinen, who earned the win Sunday, having generated five straight scoreless appearances, it remains to be seen whether manager Bob Melvin will begin to afford the latter more ninth-inning work moving forward.
