This one could be seen coming from 10 miles away. No Chone Figgins in at third base tonight. Instead, you’ll have Adam Kennedy in there.
Remember, Kennedy will see playing time at second, first, third and DH the rest of the way.
Figgins had a rough night at the plate last night with several weak popups and also got booed for some tough defensive efforts he failed to make. Figgins did come through on that 5-4-3 double play in the eighth with Dustin Ackley, but it wasn’t enough to keep him in tonight’s lineup.


Another guy not in there yet again? Jack Cust. We’ll see Mike Carp at DH tonight. This is getting serious for Cust. He’s going to have to do more when he’s in there.
