Closer allows two runs in ninth
Realizing that Gagne's streak was over, the crowd at Dodger Stadium gave Gagne a standing ovation as he stood on the mound with his head down. The Dodgers won 6-5 in the 10th.
Gagne, who entered at the start of the inning, retired the next two batters and got another standing ovation on his way to the dugout, before taking a curtain call to wilder cheers.
He had not blow a save chance since Aug. 26, 2002, also against the Diamondbacks.
Gagne's record was 30 more than the previous mark of 54, set by Tom Gordon for Boston from April 19, 1998 to June 5, 1999.
