From last July until May 14, Baltimore Orioles closer Jim Johnson converted 35 straight regular season save opportunities.

Since then, the righthander has blown four out of five save opportunities, including some in spectacular fashion.

The latest meltdown came Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Orioles had a 5-2 lead when Johnson entered the game with one out in the ninth, but he gave up four hits, a walk and four runs to give Toronto the win.

Here's a look at Johnson's last six appearances:

May 14, vs. Padres: One inning pitched, four hits, two earned runs, no strikeouts, blown save, loss

May 18, vs. Rays: 1/3 of an inning, three hits, one home run, two walks, five earned runs, blown save, loss.

May 20, vs. Yankees: One inning, two hits, one home run, one earned run, blown save.

May 21, vs. Yankees: One inning pitched, no hits, no runs, win.

May 25, vs. Blue Jays: One inning pitched, no hits, no runs, save.

May 26, vs. Blue Jays: 2/3 of an inning, four hits, one walk, four earned runs, blown save, loss.

In all, Johnson has pitched five innings in his last six appearences while allowing 13 hits, three walks and 12 earned runs. He has four blown saves and three losses. His ERA has gone from 0.95 to 5.25 and he has just two strikeouts.
