You must not be familiar Elmer Dessens. The guy can barely go five innings, and he has yet to pitch six innings in one game this season.
And tonight was no different. Elmer's pitch count already reached the nineties
in the fifth inning. He gave up two runs that inning to cut Arizona's lead from four runs to two runs, and there were runners on second and third. This is the kind of situation he puts himself and the team into every time he pitches. Expect Brenly to say the F-word: Fossum.
