Sky Sox juggle line-up for Thursday’s game

Third baseman Ryan Wheeler took his first day off this season after starting all 13 games so far. He was the only Sky Sox to play the same position all season.

The lineup juggling ended up giving designated hitter Matt McBride his first start this season in right field.  McBride, who is listed as a catcher on the Colorado Springs roster, also has two starts in left field, one at first base and  and none behind the plate.

Right fielder Kyle Parker (12 games) gets his first game at first base with usual first baseman Ben Paulsen (12 games) moving into the designated hitter spot usually held by McBride.
