• Justin Smoak didn't start at first base for a third straight game Sunday. Wedge said that was partly due to a sore quadriceps muscle and also in order to keep Morales' bat in the lineup at first base, with no DH available in the Interleague series. Smoak will return to the lineup Monday in Detroit.
