I think if youre Clint Hurdle you gotta expect more from your offense. 4 runs shouldnt be the death nail for a near certain loss. 4 runs isnt very much, in fact its about the mlb average. Yes, Liriano didnt pitch great and Hurdle took him out one batter too late, but games like this are on the offense. Any game where the pitching staff gives up 3 or 4 runs should be competitive games for a good playoff team in my opinion. So, my point is if they lose today, dont blame Liriano, blame it on a lack of clutch hitting or pretty much no hitting at all.
