Milwaukee’s Francisco Rodriguez took to twitter after giving up four runs in two-thirds of an inning and taking a blown save and a loss Monday against the Phillies.

This one was ugly, but it was K-Rod’s first blown save in three tries since he replaced John Axford in the closer’s role for the Brewers. It will be interesting to see what manager Ron Roenicke does next. Axford has thrown 2 1/3 scoreless innings in four appearances since being demoted and might be ready for another crack at the job. Still, given Rodriguez’s track record, it wouldn’t be fair to let one bad outing cost him his job. Axford had six blown saves and six losses before he was pulled.
