Bad night. (Overflowing with respect for Joe Torre, but I have to disagree with the pitching change in the bottom of the 5th inning. Choice may have been limited, but to call up a rookie, Ross Ohlendorf, when the game, at 6-3, was still within reach, is indefensible. Postseason pressure on pitchers is extreme--and more so for those wearing the storied pinstripes. Definitely not the place or the time to give a Helmwige her first Brünnhilde.)
