RF Mike Baxter started Tuesday night's game in right field, largely because he was hitting .300 against Reds starter Mike Leake. "We looked at Leake and Baxter's hit him," manager Terry Collins said. "We don't want anybody saying we're not trying. They're (the Reds) in the hunt." Baxter was batting .190, but he's now 4-for-11 against Leake, including his second-inning double on Tuesday.
