Satin, Brown joining lineup against Angels' lefties

Special to MLB.com

ANAHEIM -- Josh Satin, the least-used part of the Mets' first-base rotation, was in the lineup Friday night against Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs, and the right-handed hitter is also expected to start against lefty C.J. Wilson on Sunday.

The two left-handed starters for the Angels also enable Terry Collins to use right-handed-hitting Andrew Brown in those games, the Mets' manager said. Brown was the Mets' DH on Friday.

"No. 1, they need some at-bats," Collins said of Satin and Brown. "I want to give both those guys an opportunity against the left-handers."

Satin was 0-for-5 going into the game, while Brown was 1-for-9, with the hit a three-run homer off Washington's Stephen Strasburg on March 31.

Collins said the other two first basemen, left-handed hitters Ike Davis and Lucas Duda, will be in the lineup against right-hander Jered Weaver on Saturday.
