He hadn't been doing so hot. Managers want to give their guy a shot to win, but not at the expense of risking a crooked-number inning. From what I could tell there was no confidence.
Seems kind of weird since he gave up the homer, got two outs, gave up a single, but would have been pitching to the bottom of the order.
I guess tying run was up to bat, so Cox said to himself, "no way we're losing a game where Webb is pitching if we have the chance to win."
