Jay Bruce played four innings at first base during Tuesday's win against the Astros.
"Well, no one got hurt, so that's a good sign," he said smiling after the game. "I've played first base a lot in my life, just not very much in the big leagues."
In an effort to create back-up options to Lucas Duda, Terry Collins said he approached Bruce about playing first base at the start of camp.
"I wasn't sure, being a veteran guy, being in his free agent year, how he would handle it," Collins told USA Today in late February. "But he came in, and has handled it great."
