Man...I think Penders waited too long in this inning.
I'm a fan of getting out of a one out bases loaded situation with only one run coming in. Gardner did his job. Good to see him making a contribution after what happened to him last weekend.Not a fan of the walk but having a lead after that terrible start is nice. Offense needs to pile on here.
I'd give him more shots out of the bullpen, the season has just started. He had plenty as a starter last season and showed he had a tough time being effective for more than a few innings.This is frustrating... I understand it's only the second weekend but how much more leash do you give Gardner as a reliever before you admit it doesn't work? He wasn't terrible as a starter last year and just hasn't had it at all in 2019.
