Sakata played the whole game at SS that day. Ripken played the whole game at 3B. The only player to have a replacement was the pitcher - Jim Palmer - who was taken out for Tippy Martinez in the 9th inning with one out.
So I don't know how to really define "replaced" since he started the game. I would assume it would refer to the player who played 3B the day before, which was Floyd Rayford.
