Gamel leading off in series finale

Craig Counsell is out of the lineup today, even with a rookie right-hander on the mound for San Francisco, so Mat Gamel will become the sixth different player to bat in the leadoff hole for the  Brewers.

Using a cast of characters in that spot isn’t exactly breaking new ground for the Brewers. Last year, managers Ned Yost and Dale Sveum used seven different leadoff hitters. This decade, the fewest came in 2003, when Yost used just different three players to lead off games (Eric Young started there 67 times, Scott Podsednik 59 and Alex Sanchez 36).

No Giants lineup yet, but here is Milwaukee’s:

Mat Gamel  3B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Casey McGehee  2B
Mike Cameron  CF
Corey Hart  RF
Jason Kendall  C
Jeff Suppan  RHP
