Donnie Murphy gets his turn to play second base Sunday in the finale at Tropicana Field as manager Ron Washington continues to alternate Murphy and Josh Wilson.
Washington said that he would like to start giving them consecutive games, but remains committed to keeping them both active.
Wilson went 3 for 3 on Saturday, albeit with an infield hit, a blooper to right and another infield hit.
“I can’t remember getting that lucky,” Wilson said. “But I’ll take it.”
