Gonzo, Lo Duca start against Hampton

Call this the Mike Hampton lineup. That’s what Fredi Gonzalez called it. He changed some things to get Luis Gonzalez, a career .359 hitter against Hampton, and Paul Lo Duca, a. career .370 hitter against Hampton, in the lineup. Lo Duca, the Marlins’ only, prototypical No. 2 hitter, was put in the No. 2 spot, and Gonzo moved into the No. 3 spot. Jorge Cantu, who usually hits third, batted cleanup, and Dan Uggla was dropped from the fifth spot to the seventh spot. Cody Ross, who hit a home run and double to drive in three runs Tuesday, moved up to No. 6. Wes Helms played third and Cantu moved to first base as lefty Mike Jacobs took the night off against Hampton.
