From getting his second hit to tossing an immaculate ninth, Kenley Jansen had quite a night
The Dodgers beat the Marlins, 7-2, in the opener of a four-game series on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium. With the Marlins threatening in the eighth inning, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called upon
Long story short, Jansen delivered, but little did everybody know that striking out
In the bottom of the frame, Jansen's spot in the lineup came up and he strode to the plate. Being an NL pitcher, he's had a few at-bats in his career, including one in that Game 1 of the NLDS last October. However, the former catcher had only recorded one base hit ... until Thursday night.

Taking the hill for the ninth, you'd think Jansen might have been out of steam after spending so much time on the bases, right? Nope. Instead, he recorded an immaculate inning, striking out
Have a night, Kenley.
Jansen was told tonight what an immaculate inning was & the list he joined. He had no idea, but said it was awesome when he found out.— Dodger Insider (@DodgerInsider) May 19, 2017
