I think when your bullpen is announced as being over used by your manager, before the game is even played, you need to allow your starter that only gave up 3 hits over 6 innings and was fooling the other team badly stay and stick out at least the next two outs if possible.
If they were agreeing he was done, that is a different story. But it seemed as soon as they looked at that Tracey match up, seems to be when he pulled the trigger.
Bottom line: we need better offensive firepower.
