Cain in lineup

The Brewers are putting Lorenzo Cain right to work after his Friday afternoon call-up, starting him in tonight’s series-opener against the Astros. With left-hander Wandy Rodriguez on the hill for Houston, it’s a good opportunity to rest Jim Edmonds and his sore Achilles. 

Cain was promoted to replace Carlos Gomez, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with a concussion. Chalk this up as a precautionary move, because as I write this, Gomez is part of the group taking early batting practice. 
Here’s the lineup:
Rickie Weeks  2B
Corey Hart  RF
Prince Fielder  1B
Ryan Braun  LF
Casey McGehee  3B
Lorenzo Cain  CF
Alcides Escobar SS
George Kottaras  C
Dave Bush  RHP
