Braun out; Edmonds hitting third

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers’ starting lineup tonight, a day after he was struck in the left elbow by a Tommy Hanson pitch in Monday’s loss to the Braves. That’s bad news for Brewers manager Ken Macha, who said last night that he expected Braun to be able to play. 

We’ll update Braun’s health as soon as the clubhouse opens this afternoon. For now, he’s the lineup for Game 2 of the series:

Rickie Weeks  2B

Jody Gerut  LF
Jim Edmonds  CF
Prince Fielder  1B
Casey McGehee  3B
Gregg Zaun  C
Corey Hart  RF
Alcides Escobar  SS
Dave Bush  RHP
