Domonic Brown, whose .576 OPS entering Tuesday ranked 170th out of 174 qualifying hitters in baseball, remained in the lineup. He hit sixth and singled in his first at-bat.
"I'd like to see him show the potential that he has," Sandberg said of Brown. "That goes for everybody, doing the job, for us as a group to be more consistent."
Brown also is on pace to have one of the worst seasons for a left fielder in the past 25 years. His .582 OPS in left field currently ranks 574th out of 578 qualifying left fielders from 1989-2014.
