Manager Ned Yost suddenly scrapped his closer-by-committee approach and turned to Gagne with the game on the line for the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

"I just think that he just needed a day to get away from closing," Yost said, "and that day was (Monday)."

Gagne earned his 10th save in 15 opportunities, helping the Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3.


Quote:
It wasn't without a little drama, though. Gagne allowed a single and a walk before getting Juan Pierre to hit a pop fly to seal the victory, but the closer didn't breathe easy until the ball ended up in shortstop J.J. Hardy's glove.

"The way it's been going, you never know," Gagne said. "Maybe a bird was going to fly out or something."


There's probably 10 million reasons why he's the closer again!!!

And roto geeks rejoice in the streets.

While Argentum crosses his fingers and hopes that the same fate awaits his now useless closer Jason Isringhausen.
