Shinnosuke Abe leaves after two innings

Shinnosuke Abe (YOM) was taken out of last night's game after only two innings.  While it may appear that Abe was taken out of the game because the Giants were already down 9-2 and wanted to give Abe the rest of the night off (he's a bit banged up), it seems there may have been another reason: the Giants may have thought Abe wasn't doing a good job leading the pitching staff.
