Bruce didn't think the quad injury that cost him five days hurt.
"I was as ready as I could be," he said. "I played well. I thought my defense was fine. I didn't hit the ball as well as I would have liked."
Bruce hit .262 with a double and three RBI in 42 at-bats.
Patterson joining the club didn't help matters any.... but we have to remember that Bruce has played only 56 games above the Single-A level.
He'll be back...
