You bridge

it by giving Toglia first base which was open, and pitch to a weaker hitter who hit behind him in line-up. Their preview press release even stated Toglia was their hottest hitter of late, hitting at a .400 clip. After he burned us the first time, we faced the same scenario in the second game when he came to the plate with first place open and the decision was to pitch to him and he delivered the 3 run HR to beat us. We have a very stubborn coach that has put our guys in tough spots several times this year, resulting in losses. The first two games of this Series may have had different outcomes had we just done the obvious move, give him first base. Sometimes our guys are playing against ten guys out there. The center fielder hitting behind Toglia was hitting .214. A simple move in both games might have resulted in two wins rather than two losses. I think our guys played their tails off. I wish our Coach would address his decisions this past weekend. We played well enough to win.
