McLaren's rationale for sticking with Cairo in the ninth

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Manager John McLaren was asked if he considered pinch-hitting Richie Sexson for Miguel Cairo in the bottom of the ninth inning.

"I just think that Cairo has been swinging the bat pretty good and so forth and so on," McLaren said. "So I would have stuck with Cairo."

Sexson has five hits in his 11 career at-bats against Detroit closer Todd Jones, and three of those five hits were home runs. Cairo was 1-for-4 in Sunday's game, and he lined out to center for the final out of a 7-5 loss.
