ARLINGTON -- Rookie Scott Sizemore went 1-for-2 with a walk Sunday, the day after
manager Jim Leyland did not have him in the starting
The day off came on the heels of a three-strikeout game in which
Sizemore was pinch-hit for by Don Kelly. Sizemore isn't sure if the day
off led to a better approach at the plate.
"For me, it's just each day, what happened in the game," Sizemore said.
"You take a few things away from a game like that."
Sizemore was told that Leyland pinch-hit for him Saturday because he
didn't want him to have a four-strikeout game.
"I didn't want a four-strikeout game either," Sizemore said. "But I
still wanted to bat right there in the ninth inning. I don't think four
strikeouts is different from three."
