The frustrating thing is what choice did Cora have? Even if Houck pitched two innings you still needed someone to get out of the jam in the 5th and someone to pitch the 6th.

I would nominate Schreiber and Davis, depending on the handedness of the batters. But as I have acknowledged the pen is big problem.

Danish could have pitched the 5th and 6th, right? I mean he threw 10 pitches.

Doesn’t matter who replaces him but Robles can’t see another game. Bloom needs to take him off the table now.

It all comes down to starting pitching. When the starter can’t go 5-6, this team is in real trouble because they don’t have enough effective RH relievers to mix and match the final 3-4.

Absolutely love bringing in a control deficient reliever with the bases loaded.

That counts as yet another blown save for Robles I believe. Would be the 6th or 7th
