Wacha Exits with Injury and Bullpen Melts Down in 9-7 Loss to D’backs

My recap of the 19-inning game that I published this morning talked about the fact that Mike Shildt played every single regular, including Molina, for the whole 19-inning game. We can debate the merits of that all day long, or the merits of how Shildt has rested or not rested his regulars during the final month since roster expanded, or even before. Whatever your conclusion on that is, today was a true getaway game, and here was the lineup Shildt went with:

Edman 3b

O’Neill lf

Arozarena cf

Wacha p

I found it mildly interesting that Edman’s best position is probably 2B, Munoz’s best position is probably 3B and Sosa’s best position is probably SS, but Shildt played each of them somewhere else.
