Lucroy makes first Major League start

After making his Major League debut over the weekend in Minneapolis, catcher Jonathan Lucroy is in the starting lineup tonight for the first time in his big league career as the Brewers return home to host the Astros.

When Lucroy was called up on Friday, manager Ken Macha suggested Lucroy’s best chance to start would be with veteran lefty Randy Wolf — who is tonight’s starter — on the mound. Lucroy will bat eighth for the Brewers, behind shortstop Alcides Escobar.
Here’s the rest of the lineup:
Weeks  2B
Gomez  CF
Braun  LF
Fielder  1B
McGehee  3B
Hart  RF
Escobar  SS
Lucroy  C
Wolf  P
