CANADIENS27 Posted June 30, 2013 Report Share Posted June 30, 2013 Another bullpen failure results in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay in 10 innings. Yunel Escobar's single in the 10th off Bruce Rondon won it after one out singles by James Loney and Wil Myers. Pinch runner Sam Fuld scored the winning run. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Rondon had relieved Drew Smyly who pitched a perfect ninth. It might come off as sour grapes since Rondon gave up the winning run, but Smyly has shown to be capable successfully pitching in long relief. The real culprit however, was Detroit's inability to score after the third inning when they got all three of their runs, especially in the late innigs. Only Seattle has scored fewer runs in the late innings. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
