I don't read anything into that, common deal how that played out. When 1st & 2nd guy in get rocked, particularly Away in a non-Sept reg season game, 3rd guy in with still only 1 out usually stays out there whether successful or not - takes one for the team. Was only the 6th, lotta games & road games for a stretch, can't empty the entire pen there IMO.

I think somebody woulda stayed out there for the final few runs regardless. He was 4th pitcher in the inning and Wong hurt him too.

The thing is, Bowman had a quick hook. After 2 singles and a strikeout, he gets pulled for Siegrist to face 3 righties? I know about his reverse splits but that still doesn't make much sense to me.

The error definitely didn't help anything, but it only allowed 1 more run to score. Wong is an absolute mess in the field right now.

Again, it may not have mattered since Arizona does have a really good offense and they were all over everyone last night, but I just don't understand how Maness can be trusted in anything but mop up duty at this point when now of his 8 appearances, he has been lit up in 6 of them (6 singles, 8 doubles, 4 BB allowed already). And one of the good ones was to face 1 batter.

I'd send both Wong and Maness down to figure things out. Bring back Garcia, and Tui. I believe they said last night was the first time Lyons has pitched in a week. Hard to be effective like that IMO. Meanwhile Maness keeps getting sent out there. Was glad to see Oh get the day off.

Wong has yet to get an extra base hit, and his defense has been horrendous. Give him a month in Memphis to figure it out.

Didn't you read the article I posted several posts back? Waino fixed him right after the game, it's all good now. No worries. You should always be confident when one 6.00++ ERA guy 'fixes' another 6.00++ ERA guy by watchin' a Smart Phone video. Works every time.
