Sorry, I read your post completely wrong. I read "Arredondo" since he was in the game at the time.
Regardless, did you really have an issue with him going out for the 7th when he had allowed one run through six and was at 90 pitches? Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but I can't really complain about him going out there when we had to use several arms last night.
