Elvis Andrus admitted he feels “a little lost” at the plate, but the shortstop and his manager scoffed at the idea that a recent decline is the result of fatigue. Andrus is in the midst of a 3-for-34 slide in his last nine games and seen his average fall from .304 to .233 entering play Wednesday.

“What I need is a good game,” said Andrus after being asked if a day off Wednesday coupled with today’s off day might not help. “That will help me more than a day off.

“It only takes one at-bat to be back.”

Said Ron Washington: “When people struggle, you can’t be pulling them out. They have to figure it out. Taking off is not going to make it better. He’s not tired.”
