Ozzie Guillen is sticking with Heath Bell as his closer despite yet another ninth-inning fizzle on Wednesday that nearly cost the Marlins the game.

"That's what we want. That's what I want," Guillen said Thursday, one day after the Marlins survived Bell's latest meltdown with a 3-2 victory in 10 innings at AT&T Park. "I never manage for the fans. I never manage for the owners. I never manage for the media. I manage for the ball club ... and I'm going to give Bell every opportunity to go out there to fail again."

Bell, so far, has met with more failure than success as a Marlin.
