Parra returns to face Cardinals

Manny Parra is back, and Brewers coaches are trying to make his start against the Cardinals as normal as possible to avoid putting too much pressure on the left-hander. That said, it’s a big start for Parra as he tries to reclaim his spot in Milwaukee’s starting rotation.

Corey Hart is out of the lineup for a second straight day after fouling a pitch off his left foot in Tuesday’s series opener against the Cardinals, but x-rays were negative and he said he should be back in against the Dodgers on Friday night.

So Frank Catalanotto starts in place of Hart, and catcher Mike Rivera, who had not played a single inning since June 27, gets a rare chance to play. Bill Hall is not on-site today because he traveled home to Mississippi for a family funeral.
