Robles was dinged with a blown save in Wednesday's loss to Texas, allowing one hit in two-thirds of an inning while striking out one.
Robles was called upon to protect a one-run lead with one out in the eighth inning, inheriting runners at first and second. He induced a fielder's choice groundball to Rougned Odor for the second out but then served up a game-tying single to Shin-Soo Choo before ending the inning with a strikeout. Despite the missed opportunity, Robles has a firm hold on the closer position for the Angels as he has posted a 2.78 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 57:15 K:BB in 58.1 innings this season while racking up 18 saves.

The right-hander then put the tying runner on base by allowing a single to Yolmer Sanchez. Luckily, Robles stifled the threat with a fielder's choice out and a strikeout to finish things off for good. The 29-year-old now has 17 saves this season with a 2.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP.
