Pirates' Shelton says he lost sleep after keeping reliever in for 56 pitches
"Sleeping on it - well, I didn't sleep very much because of it," Shelton said Saturday, according to Justice delos Santos of MLB.com. "I did think about it a lot. I talked to Cam last night. I talked to him again this morning. Hopefully, I'll never be put in that situation again, because it's probably been one of the most challenging situations."
Vieaux surrendered eight runs - seven earned - in the 19-2 defeat. His pitch count was the highest in an inning in team history since the stat began being recorded in 1988.
"I try to learn from all situations," Shelton said. "This is another one that I will learn through."
Brewers outfielder Andrew McCutchen appeared puzzled by the decision and sympathized with Vieaux postgame.
"I don't think I've ever seen that. ... You don't want to see anybody go through that. You don't want to see anybody get hurt," McCutchen said, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.
