Now at 3rd base: Eddie Murray


PHILADELPHIA -- Former Baltimore Oriole Eddie Murray has been a fixture at first base during his 15-year career, but last night, he made a rare appearance at third base in the eighth inning for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It was the second time since going to the Dodgers that Murray was used there, the first time coming at the end of a 22-inning game two years ago. Murray had no chances in the Dodgers' 9-8 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

With the Orioles in 1978, his second season in the major leagues, Murray started the season as the third baseman, but the experiment lasted only three games.
