It would seem that Dusty did not want to use Brox and Chapman today, both have worked the first two games. But Logan has 18 appearances after today despite being at AA for several weeks. Too much for Ondrusek.
Logan just wasn't a good choice for today and it cost the Reds. Tough game.
A few things. When did a 3 run lead become a high leverage situation? And Logan wasn't a good choice for today? The choices were Logan, Parra or Simon. That's it. Hoover was penciled in to close. You hold Simon just in case you go extras or blow it open. So basically Parra or Logan. Chapman, Broxton & LeCure were LAST options...Dusty said before the game that he didn't want to use ANY of them today unless he was absolutely forced to (not verbatim).
