For the second time this season, left fielder Ryan Braun will bat cleanup Friday night behind first baseman Prince Fielder, who will hit in the No. 3 spot.
Braun and Fielder switched spots for one game on the Brewers’ last road trip, which they won, 4-3, at Pittsburgh.
No other major changes or surprises in tonight’s lineup posted by Brewers manager Ken Macha. The only additional difference from last night is who’s batting seventh and eighth.
After a 3-for-4 night batting eighth last night, shortstop Alcides Escobar gets the nod in the No. 7 hole, while catcher George Kottaras drops down to the No. 8 spot.
The rest of the lineup is as would be expected:
