Hopefully the O's can score here in the top of the 15th to save some bullpen arms. You never know how many innings you will need from the bullpen with Matusz on the mound and he pitches tomorrow.
I wouldn't want everyone in their order to get a second look at Eveland. Stats show, hitters fare better the second time around the batting order. Why not hand it off to Gregg who can go more than one inning (which he did)? It's not like there is a talent difference between the two. I see where you're coming from but personally I think Eveland was left in and taken out at just the right time.
