Brewers' Francisco Rodriguez admits he needs a day off

Francisco Rodriguez had to convince Ron Roenicke that he could take the ninth inning for the fourth day in a row.

K-Rod took the ball and closed the door for the Brew Crew, totaling his 8th save of the season and fourth straight. He also improved his career numbers, grabbing save number 312, passing Tom Henke on the All-Time list. After the game, he let Adam McCalvy of MLB.com in on a secret.


Thursday would be the next day off scheduled for the whole team. It seems highly unlikely that Roenicke would turn to K-Rod for a fifth day in a row as the Brewers continue their series with the San Diego Padres, but from the sound of it, Rodriguez would be up to the task.

In 11 appearances for Milwaukee this season, the 32-year old has put up an amazing 0.00 ERA with 13.1 K/9.
