Manager Matt brought in Drew Storen to relieve JZimm in the 7th yesterday. He ended up giving up 2 RBI hits to left-handed hitters that allowed the Mets to draw even with the Nats at 3-3. The game remained a tie until Bryce’s walk-off homer in the 13th.
As I watched this play out I was wondering why the manager didn’t put our new lefty reliever Matt Thornton in to face those guys in the 7th. Yes, I know the 7th is usually reserved for Storen, but managers need to be creative and Manager Matt has a new weapon now:)
