Wednesday's line-ups, official game notes vs. the Pirates

5-8 -- lineups

Michael Morse gets a day off after struggling last night. As expected, Kendrys Morales starts at first base today after sitting last night. With the number of off days in the last week and coming up, manager Eric Wedge admitted that slotting the rotation has obviously been difficult, but also finding playing time for his bench players.He's trying to get them enough playing time so  that they can be productive when called upon, but he also wants to play his regulars.
