TUESDAY’S CHOKE: WHY DUMB-O GIRARDI OVERLOOKED COREY KNEBEL!

By Sam Bush

And, according to Jim Salisbury of NBCSP:

Corey Knebel wanted the ball so badly in the ill-fated ninth inning Tuesday night that he considered picking up the bullpen phone, calling down to the dugout and telling Joe Girardi to put him in the game.

Girardi stuck with Nick Nelson and moments after one-man show Bryce Harper electrified the dugout with a two-run homer to give the Phillies a one-run lead, Nelson gave up a pair of runs and the Braves danced off the field with a 6-5 win.
