Jackson allowed three hits but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his 18th save in a 5-4 win over the Marlins.
With a one-run lead, Jackson allowed three hits but worked his way out of it with an outfield assist from Ronald Acuna on the first single of the inning. Despite the arrival of Shane Greene and Mark Melancon via trades and their recent tryouts as closer, Jackson has allowed no runs in his last five appearances and Greene and Jackson's failures, could continue in the role. The righty has a 3.67 ERA through 54 innings this season.
Jackson will transition to a setup role following the acquisition of Shane Greene, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Jackson has been shaky all season (17-for-24 in save chances with a 3.96 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 50 innings) while Greene owns an impressive 1.18 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 43:12 in 38 innings on the year.
Jackson allowed two runs on two hits without recording an out during the ninth inning in a 5-4 extra-inning victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old would sure like to face a different team. In his last three outings against the Nationals, Jackson has allowed seven runs in two innings. On Wednesday, he wasn't charged with a blown save. However, Jackson allowed two hits to the two batters he faced, and then both runners scored against the next relief pitcher, which tied the game. With a couple bullpen additions at the trade deadline, it will be interesting to see if the Braves keep Jackson in the closer role. He has 17 saves with seven blown opportunities, along with a 3.96 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 67 strikeouts in 50 innings this season.
Jackson gave up three runs on three hits and a walk in the ninth inning of Tuesday's win over the Nationals.
Atlanta held an 11-5 win when Jackson took the mound, but he promptly served up a two-run homer to Juan Soto and then an RBI single to Brian Dozier to make things interesting. The right-hander now has a bloated 10.50 ERA in six innings since the All-Star break, and Jackson's days as closer could be numbered with Chris Martin (back) joining the Atlanta bullpen via trade.
Jackson (5-2) blew his seventh save of the season Friday but recorded the win in a 4-3 victory over the Nationals, giving up two runs on two hits in an inning of relief while striking out two.
Called upon in the ninth inning to protect a 3-1 lead, Jackson instead served up a two-run homer to Victor Robles, only for Atlanta to walk it off in the bottom of the frame. Jackson now sports a 3.19 ERA and 66:18 K:BB through 48 innings, and despite his 17 saves on the year he remains a prime candidate to lose his spot as closer if Atlanta adds bullpen reinforcements at the trade deadline.
Jackson struck out two and allowed no hits and no walks through a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his 17th save in a 4-2 win over the Brewers.
Jackson entered the game with a two-run lead and quickly slammed the door to nail down his 17th save of the season. While Jackson often allows baserunners and makes things interesting, the right-hander has earned saves in his last four appearances and has a 2.87 ERA with a 12.3 K/9 overall this season.
Jackson allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one to earn his 16th save of the season in Saturday's 7-5 extra-inning win over the Padres.
The Braves gave Jackson a three-run lead in the top of the 10th inning, but the closer made things interesting by loading the bases before striking out Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo to escape the jam. Jackson has allowed a run in each of his saves to start the second half of the season, pushing his ERA up to 2.93 for the year. The 27-year-old also has a 62:18 K:BB in 46 innings this season.
Jackson picked up the save Friday against the Padres after allowing one run on a hit and a walk with two strikeouts over one inning.
Jackson gave up a leadoff walk to Manuel Margot, then punched out Greg Garcia and Fernando Tatis Jr. before allowing an RBI single to Eric Hosmer to make the score 5-3. Fortunately, that was the final run of the night for the Padres as Jackson got Manny Machado to ground out and end the game. The 27-year-old now owns a 2.80 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 61:16 K:BB with 15 saves over 42 appearances.
Jackson gave up three hits and a walk through a scoreless inning to record his 14th save in a 4-3 win over the Marlins on Sunday.
Jackson definitely made things interesting. He allowed three singles to start the ninth inning before an outfield assist by Charlie Culberson prevented the tying run from scoring. The right-hander went on to walk the next batter before finally finishing the game with a flyout to secure the save. Jackson has a 4-2 record with 14 saves and a 2.66 ERA through 40 appearances heading into the All-Star break.
Jackson (4-2) picked up the win in Friday's 1-0 victory over the Marlins, allowing one hit and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning.
With a save chance no longer possible at home, Jackson entered a 0-0 tie in the ninth and promptly gave up a leadoff double to Jorge Alfaro, but the Atlanta closer settled down and didn't let him advance any further. He then got rewarded when Brian McCann came through with a bases-loaded walkoff single in the bottom of the frame. Jackson has hardly been a shutdown option at the back of the bullpen, blowing six save chances against 13 conversions, but his 59:14 K:BB through 43 innings does highlight his upside.
Jackson struck out two and walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 13th save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Mets.
The right-hander converted his third consecutive save opportunity and worked around a leadoff error by usually reliable first baseman Freddie Freeman. After walking J.D. Davis, he rallied to retire the next three batters. The 27-year-old has allowed just one earned run in his last eight appearances and overall has a 2.85 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go along with a 57:13 K:BB.
Jackson didn't allow a baserunner while striking out two to earn the save Tuesday against the Cubs.
Jackson sat the Cubs down in order, highlighted by consecutive swinging strikeouts to end the game. It was his 12th save of the season and his second consecutive successful conversion. However, he has still allowed seven runs (four earned) to cross the plate in the month of June. He remains the Braves' primary closer, but will have to continue to improve his performance to fend off the likes of Anthony Swarzak and A.J. Minter.
Jackson picked up his 11th save of the season Sunday against the Nationals, allowing one run on two hits and one walk in one inning.
Jackson entered Sunday's game in the 10th inning with a two-run lead and immediately ran into trouble, allowing a leadoff walk and a single to the first two batters he faced. Trea Turner followed with a run-scoring fielder's choice and moved to second on an Adam Eaton single, but Jackson settled in and retired the next two batters to secure the 4-3 win. Jackson is now 11-for-17 on save chances this season and owns a 3.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 52:12 K:BB through 38 innings.
Jackson (3-2) gave up two unearned runs on two hits in the ninth inning Saturday to blow his sixth save of the season and get saddled with the loss as Atlanta fell 6-5 to the Phillies.
The error that made the runs unearned was his own -- after allowing a leadoff single to Scott Kingery, Jackson threw wide of first base on Sean Rodriguez's sacrifice bunt -- so it's hard to call the blown save undeserved. The right-hander has now botched four of his last eight save opportunities, and with A.J. Minter back and Anthony Swarzak pitching well since his acquisition, Jackson's leash as closer could be very short.
Jackson allowed an unearned run on two hits during the ninth inning but still recorded his 10th save in a 6-5 victory against the Pirates on Thursday.
The Braves closer recorded the first two outs of the frame via the ground ball, one of which was produced on a nice bare-handed play from Dansby Swanson. Jackson gave up a double and infield single to the next two batters, but because the first baserunner advanced to third base on a passed ball before the single, the run was unearned. Still, Jackson has given up runs in four of his last five outings. He is 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 34 innings. Jackson is also 10-for-15 in save chances.
Jackson gave up a run on two hits while striking out three in an inning of relief to blow his fifth save of the season in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Marlins.
The right-hander came into the game in the 10th inning after Atlanta had nudged ahead in the top of the frame on a bases-loaded walk, but a Harold Ramirez single and Martin Prado double with one out knotted the score back up. Jackson has now blown half of his last six save chances, posting a 5.59 ERA over his last 9.2 innings despite a seemingly dominant 20:2 K:BB. A.J. Minter has a 2.53 ERA and 15:2 K:BB in 10.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett, but as yet Atlanta doesn't seem to be thinking about making a change at closer.
Jackson posted a four-out save, striking out the side in the ninth to preserve an 1-0 victory against the Marlins on Saturday.
The right-hander came on with a runner at second and two outs in the eighth, and while he gave up a walk, he worked out of that jam. Jackson then struck out the side with a single mixed in during the ninth. Since his last blown save May 21, Jackson has been better, yielding just one run in seven frames. Overall, he is 9-for-13 in save chances with a 2.90 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.
Jackson allowed one run on a homer during a non-save situation in the ninth inning against the Tigers on Sunday.
Owners didn't have much to gain from Jackson entering with a four-run lead in the ninth, and making matters worse, he allowed a run. That moved his ERA back up to 3.03. The run didn't really hurt his other numbers, but Jackson probably needs to improve slightly to remain in the Braves' closer role for the long haul. He is 8-for-12 in save chances with a 1.18 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 29.2 innings this year.
Jackson earned the save Saturday against the Tigers by allowing one hit over 1.2 innings and recording all five outs via strikeout.
Jackson last appeared in a game Sunday at St. Louis but showed no signs of rust as he needed only 22 pitches. The 27-year-old has 10 strikeouts and zero walks across his last three appearances, covering 4.2 innings. Jackson has a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP overall and is 8-for-12 in save opportunities.
Jackson picked up the save against the Cardinals on Sunday, tossing a scoreless 10th inning and allowing one hit while striking out two.
Jackson rewarded the Braves for sticking with him despite blowing his previous two save opportunities, giving up only a two-out single and striking out Kolten Wong to wrap up the victory. His grasp on the closer role is tenuous -- he has blown four of his seven save opportunities -- but his ability to strike batters out (36 Ks in 27 innings) makes him a viable late-inning option.
