If that was Marshall's second inning, I will rescind my criticism there. I only remembered him facing two batters, the two lefties in the 8th.
And I liked Hoover out there the first inning. The second inning was asking a bit much, even more so once runners starting getting into scoring position. It was a giant stroke of luck that the game lived on from that inning.
However, Marshall only pitched 2/3 of an inning, therefore I stand by my point. The two lefties. Dusty thinks he is a LOOGY, and that is inexcusable.
