8-4 -- lineups

As expected, Nick Franklin got the day off.

“He needs it,” acting manager Robby Thompson said. “We got three righties in a row coming up so he’ll back in there hopefully tomorrow.”

“I think today’s as good as any, a day game after a night game. Not that he needs it, he’s a young kid. But the mental side of things, a quick turnaround and not real good night last night at the plate. We’ll just give him a little blow. Maybe he can get a nice work day in the cage. Sit and watch the game. Sometimes a day like that, just from the mental side of things, can bring a guy back.  That’s what we were hoping for.”
