I noticed that too. It would seem strange to make a closer change when Lidge had converted 7 of his last 8 chances while allowing only 2 hits and one walk total over those 8 games. Also Qualls blew a save while giving up 2 runs in the 8th inning yesterday
. Didn't they just have a management change in houston? Maybe the new manager felt the need to mess with Lidge a little now that he was finally comfortable and dealing in the closers role again. Yanked him out of the closers role for at least a day and he gives up as many hits as his last 8 games combined. Way to go.
