Why would you bring back Chapman for a second inning reducing his availability(or at least effectiveness) if he's needed to pitch tonight? The strategy changes dramatically when you have no idea if him pitching a 10th inning will actually lead to a win.
I just want to know why Dusty doesn't have someone warming in the pen. 1 more run and definitely 2 more runs and you're really putting a lot of pressure on the offense. Leake hasn't fooled anyone. His pitches are getting hit. Hard.
