Stammen allowed one run on two hits, taking his seventh blown save of the year in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Braves.

Stammen allowed a game-tying solo home run to Ronald Acuna in the seventh inning of Saturday's contest. Stammen's seven blown saves dubiously lead the majors in that category, though most of them could more accurately be called "blown holds." He has a serviceable 3.94 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 48 innings this season, having accumulated four saves and 19 holds as a regular set-up man to closer Kirby Yates. Stammen had only blown nine saves in his previous nine seasons, with five of them coming last year.
