Ok that works. Let them strand many, many guys tonight. Or not let them have the chance and get every one out.

Pivedder ends the 2nd inning at 29 pitches -- nerve-wracking but reasonably efficient.

Pivetta gets squeezed and lets it get in his head. Seen it a few times this year. He needs to learn to shake it off faster.

If you’ve got guys on second and third and are letting Maldonado bat because he’s worked with a pitcher who probably won’t make it to the third….
They weirdly don't have much on their bench, either.

Jason Castro is the other catcher and the only lefty, Aledmys Diaz is a utility infield type, we've seen José Siri, and Meyers is recovering from a shoulder injury.

People actually thought he was "pitching around" Maldonado??? He can't find the plate
