Tonight, with Chase Headley representing the tying run on second, Bud Black elected to pinch hit for Khalil Greene. Instead of sending Khalil up to swing at balls out of the strike zone, Black sent Brian Myrow up. Myrow proceeded to swing at balls out of the zone and strike out.
While Headley never crossed the plate, that’s hardly the story here.
Khalil Greene, one-time golden boy of this franchise, has fallen so low that he’s pulled from a game changing situation for a career minor leaguer.
