Tantalizing stuff, puts runners on with walks. That's Jose.
Izturis walks and scores on double by Olivo.
Arroyo hit in hand with comebacker in this game, getting x-rays.
Mes singles home Olivo. This feels like a game thread.
Now Ondrusek is in -- he gives up runs and doesn't have it today. Did not help himself in this outing.
Ondrusek and Arredondo making my case for 11 pitchers. 5 Starters who should give lots of innings and 5 relievers who can shut teams down (Chapman, Marshall, Broxton, Hoover and Lecure) and a LOOGY who can serve as an inning eater in blow-outs. If one of the top 10 goes down or goes south, you may need to go to 12, but why clutter the roster with one of those throw-away arms until it's needed?
