Who was on the bench?
On the year Reed is batting .364 as a pinch-hitter. He's 8 for 22 in that role with a .500 slg%.
Moreover, Reed's been up 10 times this year with 2 outs and RISP and he has 4 hits and 3 walks.
In his career, Berroa is 1 for 10 as a pinch hitter....actually he's now 1 for 11 after swinging and meekly grounding out on the first pitch against a guy who had walked 6 batters to that point.
Why on Earth would you pinch hit Angel Berroa over Reed in that situation?
Maybe cause it would have been lefty against lefty....oh wait, Reed is 4 for 7 against lefty's this year and Davis is actually easier to hit from the left side.
It's effin nuts!
