Q back in the saddle

Robb Quinlan started at first base tonight, a day after starting at third. It is the first time he has started back-to-back games since Sept. 4 and 5 of last season. Coincidentally, those games, like the last two, were against the A’s.

Quinlan got the start at third base Monday because Chone Figgins had to move to second base with Maicer Izturis nursing a sore back and Howie Kendrick on the DL. Brandon Wood is the starter at third tonigt with Quinlan taking over at first for Casey Kotchman because the A’s started a left-hander in Greg Smith.
