Gerut gets a shot against Pelfrey, Mets

Mike Cameron is getting what I presume is just a day off today, so Jody Gerut will get another chance to get his feet under him as the Brewers aim for a sweep of the Mets. Gerut is 3-for-29 (.103) with one RBI since joining the Brewers.

The New Yorkers should be playing with an extra focus after a closed-door meeting last night in which manager Jerry Manuel demanded that everyone take the team bus from the Pfister Hotel to the ballpark. That’s bad news for Milwaukee’s taxi drivers.Typically, players, particularly the starting position players, arrive much earlier via cab.

Manuel said yetserday that he planned to rest David Wright and Gary Sheffield in the series finale, but he apparently changed his mind about Wright. Here are the lineups:

Alex Cora  SS
Luis Castillo  2B
David Wright  3B
Ryan Church  RF
Nick Evans  LF
Daniel Murphy  1B
Fernando Martinez  CF
Brian Schneider  C
Mike Pelfrey  RHP

Craig Counsell  2B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Mat Gamel  3B
Jason Kendall  C
Jody Gerut  CF
Yovani Gallardo  RHP
