Counsell at shortstop vs. lefty Bumgarner

As promised by manager Ken Macha, rookie shortstop Alcides Escobar got the day off Tuesday in the Brewers’ second of a four-game series against the Giants at Miller Park. 

Macha said he would give Escobar at least two of the final six games off before the All-Star break, and Tuesday was the first, as veteran Craig Counsell was in the lineup for the Crew with left-handed rookie Madison Bumgarner on the hill for San Francisco.
The rest of the lineup is as would be expected, with George Kottaras starting in place of rookie Jonathan Lucroy as lefty Randy Wolf takes the mound for Milwaukee.
Here’s the rest of the lineup:
Weeks  2B
Hart  RF
Fielder  1B
Braun  LF
McGehee  3B
Counsell  SS
Gomez  CF
Kottaras  C
Wolf  P
