2 possible explanations...
1. They didn't know when they made yesterday's lineup that Votto's injury was this serious. They wanted to sit Votto/Bruce on different days.
2. We need to get Bruce going badly and regardless of lefty/righty, Bauer is 100 times better than Miley. He was more likely to hit Miley and getting him confidence is very high on the priority list.
