Edmonds back in starting lineup

Outfielder Jim Edmonds is back in action for the Brewers tonight for the first time since last Wednesday, when he tweaked his back in the 13th inning of an eventual loss to the Pirates. Edmonds was hurt sliding into second base on a successful steal and said he further inflamed the injury when he slid home — unsuccessfully — trying to score the winning run. 
Edmonds, first baseman Prince Fielder and catcher George Kottaras give the Brewers three left-handed hitters against Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley. Lefties are hitting .383 against him this season and slugging .660. Right-handed batters are only hitting .231 and slugging .365 against the 2009 All-Star. 
Here’s the lineup:
Rickie Weeks  2B
Carlos Gomez  CF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Casey McGehee  3B
Jim Edmonds  RF
Alcides Escobar  SS
George Kottaras  C
Doug Davis  LHP
