Counsell, Gerut, Hardy back in lineup

Manager Ken Macha said he didn’t plan to start Craig Counsell at third base against Pedro Martinez (even though Counsell is 9-for-20 against Pedro in his career), but when Martinez was scratched with a neck injury and replaced by Kyle Kendrick, Macha must have liked the matchup. Counsell is in there tonight for the Brewers, who are trying to push the Phillies’ National League East clinch away from Miller Park.

J.J. Hardy is also starting at shortstop for only the second time since Sept. 19. Jody Gerut is spelling Mike Cameron in center field.
