Tony doing big time Tony things today in the doubleheader. Trying to get years worth of NL managing into the handful of interleague road games they have.
Brings in Hendriks with 2 outs in bottom nine, double switches him in to the spot that made the last out in top 9. Then puts him out at second base for the top of the tenth, even though, according to this link: https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-announces- ... 020-season
(yes it's a year old, assume it still applies) you don't have to put your pitcher out there. Eventually gets to a first and third, one out situation, Billy Hamilton (who started, on purpose I assume) at the plate. They try to steal second with Leury Garcia for some reason, he gets thrown out, Hamilton strikes out, oops.
Then in the bottom Winker, OPSing 1.066 comes up with guys on first and third, and Larussa chooses to pitch to him and not load the bases for backup first baseman Kyle Farmer (career .654 OPS) and Suarez (.556 OPS this year). Single, game over.
