News: Jackson (3-3) earned the victory Saturday, completing one inning of hitless relief and striking out a batter in a 2-1 win over the Phillies.
Impact: Jackson turned in his second consecutive scoreless effort after surrendering runs in three consecutive appearances. He also faced the minimum number of batters for the second outing in September and posted a strikeout for the third consecutive contest. The veteran reliever has turned in generally solid work overall for both the Cubs and Braves in 2015, and his current 1.24 WHIP is a nice improvement from his career 1.45 figure in that category.
