Juan Pierre was out of the lineup, but Grady says he’ll be back in there tomorrow night against Toronto and Dustin McGowan, leading off. So much for any dramatic lineup shakeups. “We’re just going to give Juan a day off,” Grady said. “He is the type of player that he is. He just needs to stay focused on not trying to be someone he isn’t. He’ll get it going.” Pierre is 2 for 18 lifetime against Jake Peavy, another reason he’s out of the lineup.
2B Kent — 6-20 lifetime against Peavy
LF Gonzo — hitting .381 (16-42) against Peavy with 4 HR
Also, Saito was fine covering first base and will be back tomorrow night.
