After slumping for weeks with slipping velocity and toothless bite on his signature cutter, Kenley Jansen reached 95.2 mph while closing out the Los Angeles Dodgers' 6-2 Game 3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. It was his fastest pitch since early September, a sign the three-time All-Star might be over his mysterious struggles.
