On fourth day of sweep, Jansen rests

PHILADELPHIA -- Closer Kenley Jansen was not available in the Dodgers' 8-3 win over the Phillies on Thursday. Jansen pitched the ninth inning and earned the save in each of the first three games of the series.

"Yeah, we won't use him today," manager Don Mattingly said prior to the game.

On the season, the 24-year-old right-hander finished the day 4-0 with a 2.20 ERA and nine saves.

If the Dodgers were to get into a save situation on Thursday, Mattingly said he would decide who would pitch based on matchups.
