Yes, it wasn't a panic situation, but it is never too early in the season to display resiliency. A strong start by a starter that gets pissed away too often, can affect the whole team. Hitters start trying to do too much, fielders taking unnecessary risks, etc.
Kelly, Rosenthal, and especially Mujica restored order. Keep winning series has been a successful formula here. Hopefully Adam comes out dealing tonight and regardless of the series finale it will be a happy flight home.
