Manager Ozzie Guillen and closer Heath Bell have a difference of opinion about how to pitch with a three-run lead in the ninth inning.

After Friday's 7-6 win, Guillen questioned why Bell threw Joaquin Arias a 2-1 breaking ball. The count went to 3-1 and after three straight foul balls, Arias doubled to the left-center field gap. Both Guillen and Bell revisited the subject before Saturday's game.

"I don't know much about pitching, but it makes you wonder what we're thinking," Guillen said. "I don't blame him a bit because maybe he did it before. You're up by three runs the pitch selection was very poor. I don't criticize his pitch selection because [if he throws strikes] everybody goes, 'Wow, look at that pitch.' I want him to be aggressive with his fastball. That's the best pitch he has. Get beat by your fastball. I will take that."

Bell got an out before giving up two more hits. That's when Guillen yanked him for Steve Cishek, who recorded the final two outs for the save.

"I'm not questioning Ozzie when he makes his decisions," Bell said. "Everybody can second guess me all they want, but I've pitched a certain way, and the key word is pitched. I'll throw any pitch at any given time and I'm not going to back down from my pitching style. I'm not a guy that was blessed to throw 99 miles an hour and when he's 34 he only throws 94-95. I was a guy that had to pitch when I was in high school and college, and the first two years in the minor leagues when I only threw 86 to maybe 90.
