      Can’t understand why Iwase threw anything close to plate to Abe in that situation. Take your chances with anyone else.

    2. Nathan

      Heh.. I mean he was obviously thinking about protecting that run instead of playing 1:1 game going into the bottom of 9th. I mean, that’s the closer’s mentality, but it obviously caused them a game in this case.

    3. IM

      For sure, a closer has to feel like he’s bulletproof out there to be any good, but Tanishige should take charge in that case. You don’t normally want to walk the go-ahead run into scoring position, but with a full count Abe was waiting for the fastball. I’d rather deal with the bases loaded, a force at any base and a lesser hitter up. Maybe Abe chases if you throw it out of zone. Oh well, second guessing, that’s the fun of baseball.
      Isawe came back the next night to get Abe out ending the game.
