In hindsight, Johnson said, maybe he should have warmed up left-hander Sean Burnett, who got the final out in the eighth, earlier. He knew the Padres would be sending the lefty Kotsay up as a pinch hitter, but Clippard’s splits reveal that he’s just as effective against lefties as he is against righties. Anytime the thought entered his mind, though, Johnson pushed it out. Clippard was his guy.

“I mean, it’s Tyler Clippard,” Johnson said.

2012 Tyler Clippard isn't the same as the 2010-2011 Tyler Clippard. Why doesn't Davey get this?
