Hall to make first career start in RF

Just as Ken Macha hinted on Sunday after the Brewers announced that Corey Hart was due for an appendectomy, Bill Hall is making his first career start in right field for tonight’s series-opener at Dodger Stadium. Hall gets the call against Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw because he bats right-handed, though his average against southpaws is down to .239.

After it became clear that Hart would go to the disabled list, the Brewers called down to Nashville and asked mangaer Don Money to use Hall in right field. Hall started there for both games of a doubleheader against Albuquerque, and Hall went 0-for-6 in the two games with an RBI. He finished his brief stint in the Minors with four hits in 14 at-bats (.286).

The lineup looks like this:

Felipe Lopez  2B
Casey McGehee  3B
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Mike Cameron  CF
J.J. Hardy  SS
Bill Hall  RF
Mike Rivera  C
Manny Parra  LHP
