    Kelly was charged with a blown save after giving up one run in one inning against Baltimore on Wednesday. He walked one and struck out three.

    Impact

    Kelly came on in the sixth inning and yielded a run on a walk, a wild pitch and a single. He also struck out the side and tossed 15 of 25 pitches for strikes. Kelly had previously been dealing with a minor leg issue but appears to be feeling better after tossing for the second time in the Dodgers' last four games.

    Kelly has seen a reduced workload due to a leg issue, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Impact

    Kelly did not pitch for five days due to the minor issue but hurled a scoreless inning in relief Saturday, issuing two walks and striking out one batter. Manager Dave Roberts did not offer any specifics on the injury, but Kelly's presence on the mound against the Giants suggests that it isn't serious in nature. The 31-year-old has been one of the Dodgers' most reliable relievers since the All-Star break, compiling a 3.06 ERA and holding hitters to a .190 average over 17.2 innings.

    Kelly pitched one inning against Arizona on Thursday, allowing three runs on three hits while striking out one.

    Impact

    Kelly took over in the sixth inning and gave up hits to the first three batters he faced. The third was a long ball off the bat of Eduardo Escobar that snapped Kelly's streak of 11 appearances without allowing a run. The 31-year-old got off to a rough start in his first campaign with the Dodgers but had turned things around over the last three months, compiling a 4-1 record along with four holds, a 2.25 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and 39 strikeouts in 28 innings since the start of June.
