Fick starts in right

Utilityman Robert Fick made his first outfield start of the season, filling in for Austin Kearns in right field.

Acta made the move to give Fick more at-bats.

With heavy winds swirling at RFK, Fick said he was prepared to deal with the elements.

“You know what? I’m just going to play deep and try not to let them hit it over my head,” Fick said before the game. “That’s the way I’ve always played out there. My mom will be watching the game, so I better get a couple hits.”
