Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, on the pressure of having to complete his save in a timely fashion, before the planned fireworks show at Dodger Stadium was cancelled because of a curfew: "I don't care about fireworks. I have to make sure I don't get fireworks out there."

Kenley Jansen is the hero. He finishes off the Diamondbacks in time for fireworks. Huge cheer. Dodgers earn a wild 9-7 victory.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers are giving closer Kenley Kansen 15 minutes to finish off the top of the ninth otherwise there will be no fireworks show as scheduled. The club has a local curfew of 10:55 p.m. for fireworks. There is over 50,000 at Dodger Stadium. No pressure.
