Starters who walk in two runs with their team already losing by two generally don't stay in for two more innings. I am guessing that Ventura wanted a well-rested bullpen for Axelrod's start against the Red Sox

If Peavy was on, two runs would have been enough to win, even with a run in the ninth. The Sox beat the Angels scoring only two runs through eight and another in the ninth in Sale's start and scored nine runs in losing Santiago's start.
You blame pitching for 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 losses, consistently. Please, spread blame around where blame is due.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
