Probably because yesterday was Votto's turn to get a night off, scheduled before the knee surgery thing.
So if both are healthy he wants Votto or Bruce in the lineup. Doesn't rest his two all stars at the same time. (Now it's a bit different with Votto out for several weeks.)
I do agree though that I was very surprised Ludwick didn't start last night. I was surprised Heisey played.
