Lopez out; Gerut leading off

It appears that Felipe Lopez’s visit with Brewers medical staffers today didn’t go well, because he is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a series against Cincinnati at Miller Park. Lopez hurt the arch of his right foot while scoring amid the Brewers’ five-run rally in the ninth inning on Tuesday.

With Lopez unavailable, manager Ken Macha settled on Jody Gerut as his leadoff hitter. Gerut is on a hot streak, hitting .345 (10-for-29) over his last 22 games after beginning his Brewers tenure 4-for-41 (.098).
