Cain still in CF for finale

Standard stuff today as the Brewers try to avoid getting swept by the Dodgers:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Corey Hart  RF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Casey McGehee  3B
Lorenzo Cain  CF
Alcides Escobar  SS
Jonathan Lucroy  C
Yovani Gallardo  RHP
Cain has been “better than expected” defensively, manager Ken Macha said Wednesday night after Cain showed off his arm strength. He ranged into right-center field for Matt Kemp’s sacrifice fly and somehow halted his momentum long enough to fire a throw home that nearly beat Ryan Theriot to the plate. 
“Oh, man, what a throw,” Macha said. “is defense has been better than expected.”
Macha didn’t know Cain had such a strong arm. He had few chances to show it off in Spring Training games. 
“It’s pretty darn accurate, too,” Macha said. “When you’re running like he was running on that sacrifice fly, and then you put the brakes on and make a fairly accurate throw and get a close play … I didn’t even think he had a chance.”
