Right fielder Nelson Cruz was out of the starting lineup Sunday with what he called a "tight" Achilles tendon. Blame it on his new shoes, Cruz said. "That's my guess," Cruz said before Sunday's 5-0 victory. "I put on new shoes the last day in Oakland." Cruz switched back to a pair of old shoes Saturday, but the damage had been done. He came out of the game in the bottom of the eighth.
