Worth noting

Jarrod Saltalamacchia was back in the lineup Friday, after he was given a breather Thursday afternoon. Saltalamacchia did pinch-hit in the eighth inning in Thursday's win over the Rockies. Redmond went with Saltalamacchia to pinch-hit instead of Greg Dobbs because he felt he was primed to deliver a big hit. Instead, he struck out.
