Alou was playing the percentages. The odds of Giles hitting a HR off a lefty were less than him hitting a hr off Herges. There were two guys on 2 outs and the Giants were up 2. All Alou was thinking about was not giving up a HR. Looks like he doesn't have confidence in Herges to get good left handed hitters out. Herges will still get some saves, but not as many.
