"I wanted him to get him out," manager Ron Washington said. "He was making pitches and Punto didn't chase. I'd like to have seen him get him out."
Washington was asked if Wilson challenges Punto, does the manager like his chances.
"Yeah," Washington said. "I got C.J. out there. We're talking about Nick Punto. He's not Stan Musial."
Punto was hitting .143 in the postseason going into Game 1. Washington did walk him intentionally earlier in the game to get to the pitcher's spot.
"I knew right there in that inning, it was going to be the pitcher hitting," Washington said.
