Saito gets the Save Op...

...no Baez Monday night. He didn't pitch Sunday. Has he lost his job?

BTW, Saito gave up a homer, but still notched the save.

"Dodgers manager Grady Little said he was going to use both Saito and Danys Baez in closing situations until Eric Gagne returns to the bullpen later this month."

More quotes from Dodgers.com

The latest episode of reliever roulette put 36-year-old rookie Takashi Saito on the mound for a 1-2-3 eighth inning, and Little left him out there for the ninth, even after a solo opposite-field home run by Matt Holliday to right field.

"It was purely a gut feel after watching the way he worked through the eighth inning with a limited number [11] of pitches," Little said of his decision to bypass Danys Baez, who has been the closer since Eric Gagne's surgery. "It's the way I wanted to go about it tonight."

Before the game, Little said Baez was still his closer despite two weeks of struggles. Although, he immediately added that the thought of Saito closing games had crossed his mind, and he reserved the right to change it at any time.
