And now, the questions resume. Will Lidge get the ball in the next save situation?
"Yes," answered manager Phil Garner.
"Because he's my closer," Garner replied.
No one seemed to have a problem with the pitch Lidge threw to Nady. It was an inside fastball, in the same area where Oswalt had pitched to Nady throughout the game. Oswalt surmised Nady was waiting for it this time.
"With [Lidge], you've got to try to have a zone," Nady said. "Fortunately, I got a fastball in and I was able to put some wood on it. With him, he's got good stuff, you've got to battle up there and try to find something you can drive."
Lidge stood at his locker and answered the same questions for several minutes, contending that he was comfortable with the pitch he threw Nady.
"Honestly, the guy hit a good pitch tonight and I felt good out there," Lidge said. "It was an unfortunate result. The reality is, I still feel good right now. I still feel confident, I still feel like I can have a great season. I'm not going to worry about tonight. It is frustrating. There is no doubt about it. We got two pretty quick outs there."
