Brewers go for sweep

Left-hander Cliff Lee stands between the Brewers and what would be a very encouraging three-game sweep of the Phillies today.

Lee, of course, is a sensational left-hander, and that means the Brewers are giving right-handed hitting Erick Almonte another shot in right field. After going 1-for-2 as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday (no, that’s not a typo), Almonte is 3-for-23 this season. It’s been a tough go for the team’s best Spring Training hitter.

The lineup:

Rickie Weeks 2B
Carlos Gomez CF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Yuniesky Betancourt SS
Erick Almonte RF
Jonathan Lucroy C
Chris Narveson LHP
