After entering a tie game to start the ninth, Eddie Guardado walked four batters tonight and took his second straight loss.
Disgusting. It was especially surprising coming from Guardado, who hasn't walked more than 18 batters in a year since 2001. Guardado threw 38 pitches in the inning, so expect him to get Friday off, leaving J.J. Putz in position to pick up another save opportunity. If Guardado doesn't get his act together soon, he might lose his job to Putz.
