"I'm going to rotate those guys," Gibson said. "They'll have to pull for each other."

• Trumbo entered Saturday's game in an 0-for-12 stretch, and Gibson hit him seventh for the first time this season rather than his usual sixth. Trumbo singled in his first at-bat and finished 2-for-4 with a run scored.

• Shortstop Didi Gregorius hit a three-run walk-off homer for Triple-A Reno on Friday night.

Gregorius, who lost out in the starting shortstop battle with Chris Owings this spring, had five RBIs in the game.
