Gamel gets a start

Mat Gamel is making his first start today since returning to the Brewers for September as the team aims to split its four-game series with the Cubs. He’ll team on the left side of the infield with Alcides Escobar, a potential preview of 2010 if the Brewers decide against using J.J. Hardy at shortstop and Casey McGehee at third.

(Remember J.J. Hardy? Used to wear No. 7 for the Brewers? Tough to find playing time for him if Escobar is going to have games like last night — 4-for-5, three RBIs, two defensive gems.)

Speaking of Escobar’s big Wednesday night, here’s a note from Brewers PR boss Mike Vassallo: The last four rookies to have four-hit games at Wrigley Field are all Brewers. Escobar and Casey McGehee this season, Braun in 2007 and Alex Sanchez in 2002.
