C'mon, we all know the truth here. Dusty thinks this game is almost definitely a loss. Let Homer go as long as possible to save the pen. Once Homer gave up that fifth run, I'm sure that was Dusty's thinking.
Over the long season, sometimes you have to play for the longer term. It didn't work out, had to remove Homer anyway. But that must have been the thinking.
