Brewers on a double-digit strikeout streak

After a two-day absence, shortstop Alcides Escobar is back in action for the Brewers tonight behind left-hander Chris Narveson, who will try to extend a club record the club quietly set Friday night. Brewers pitchers have combined for at least 10 strikeouts in five straight games, matching a mark set by Chris Capuano, Derrick Turnbow & Co. from Sept. 26-30 in 2005.

The current five game streak includes 63 strikeouts. The ’05 club struck out 63 batters in its five-game span, and Turnbow notched four saves.
Here’s the lineup as the current crop of Brewers try to make it four wins in a row and improve to .500 at home (39-40 entering tonight):
Rickie Weeks  2B
Corey Hart  RF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Casey McGehee  3B
Lorenzo Cain  CF
Alcides Escobar  SS
George Kottaras  C
Chris Narveson  LHP
