While I understand the argument that Maldo and The Ginth threw too many pitches on Thursday to be available Friday, and Holton needing a week of rest put us down an extra arm, you have to know when your reliever is tired, and further, you have to have trust in the fresh arms in your pen. Hliboki battled admirably, but was visibly tired by the end of the 8th. Jack Anderson, for one, exists. Why won’t Corbs and Brownie recognize this?
Anyway, we weren’t going to go 30-0 in conference. Get over it. Win the series today.
