In 15 chances with a lead or a tie, Marshall was successful 73% of the time, 11/15.
If he actually blew the save in the 9th....then he would not be 8 out of 9 in save situations...closing out games.
I was specifically talking about closing game sin the ninth.....originally...in regards to Dibble and Charlton in 1992...and Marshall as well.
I see pitchers being charged with blown saves in the 7th and 8th innings now...even the 6th? I mean...the 8th i can understand....but you are going to charge a pitcher for blowing a save during the 6th and 7th innings as well?
