Why bring in a guy who strikes out half the time into a game where you need baserunners? Damn you Jerry.

Don't worry, he didn't strike out. He only swung at a bad pitch and had a pop/fly out

How many ground balls did we hit tonight? 1 or 2? Everything pop up or strike out.

As for baserunners, it doesn't matter if you strike out or pop out. Perhaps Rowand would have been a better choice, but Liefer is a lefty. And when you are down 1 in the 9th, there is a decent argument that what you need is a homer, particularly with our offense.

Johnson handles that ball and we're tied. Another example of where errors are a poor measure of defense - he wasn't charged with one.
