Rodney worked around two hits in a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins on Thursday en route to his second save of the season.
The 42-year-old has found new life with Washington, as he's now turned in four straight scoreless appearances with two saves, a hold and four strikeouts since joining the Nationals at the end of June. He had a 9.42 ERA and 2.23 WHIP in 17 appearances with the A's before being released. Per Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post, manager Dave Martinez said Rodney is "going to be the guy" when regular closer Sean Doolittle is unavailable.
