With Lee out of the lineup, Cooper put the players names in a hat and just shook it up to see what he would get... well what he got is a lineup that he's never fielded before. Still not real sure about why Cooper keeps moving Pence around in the 5-6 hole... When Wigginton bats down low, Pence bat's 5th... but when Loretta(not near the slugger that Wigginton is) plays, Pence bat's 6th with Loretta batting 5th... Just seems odd to me.
One thing that is for sure though... An Astros lineup without Carlos Lee is not nearly as scary as a lineup with him.
Wigginton in left field... It will be interesting to see how well he does.
A win tonight puts the Astros back at .500!!!!
