How do you address an eight-run lead blowing inning??  Who do you send out??  Why, your Right Fielder of course!!

Not that it is nearly that simple, but Domingo Santana was sent down, and David Martínez was recalled.  It appears that the Astros will be happy to play short-handed on the bench and have an extra long-man in the 'pen for the foreseeable future.

Kiké Hernandez's and Marwin Gonzalez's positional flexibility help a lot with cobbling together lineups while playing one short.
