Kevin Frandsen is playing more for the Phillies and enjoying it. Frandsen, who has had uneven playing time all season, made his fifth straight start in Thursday's game against the San Diego Padres at Citizens Bank Park.
Frandsen appreciates the late-season opportunity.
"Any time you can get out there and make adjustments and play every day is a huge deal," Frandsen said before the game, which was delayed by rain.
He was in the lineup at first base on Thursday, the 27th time he has started at that position this season. Frandsen has also started 13 times at second base and four at third. He entered the game batting .235 with five home runs and 22 RBIs in 213 at-bats. As a pinch-hitter he is 13 for 52 (.250) with a home run and 10 RBIs.
