Or was this possibly going to be a 2 inning save attempt?
Same thing happened yesterday. In fact, Gonzo faced 3 RH'ers and Soriano came on in the 9th to face Dunn among others. It looks to me that a switch has been made. Gonzo used to only come on in the 8th if facing tough LH'ers, but this isn't happening anymore.
Personally I think Cox should stop all this juggling around and just make a decision. Sori wasn't very good yesterday and Gonzo was terrible today. Relievers always seem to perform better when they know their roles.
