Game 153 - Why?

One must ask why Mike Hargrove decided to let Joel Pineiro go back out for the bottom of the 8th last night. Or certainly one must ask why Hargrove decided to leave him in after giving up the walk to Koskie. After the disaster that was the 1st inning, Pineiro got himself sorted out and pitched a good game. But it was clear to even the most casual observer that he was done by the time the 8th rolled around. I'm not cutting Hargrove any slack here - the pen was full of fresh arms - no excuse for leaving Pineiro out there to take the loss.
