Braun starts, Hart moves up to sixth

Sort of buried the lede in this first post. Yes, Ryan Braun is back in the lineup after exiting early on Wednesday with a bruised left ankle. 

The Brewers begin a series against the Pirates tonight with a new six-hole hitter in right-fielder Corey Hart, who went 4-for-11 in the Padres series and might be inching up the lineup. Eventually, the Brewers will have to decide whether to use Hart somewhere below the Ryan Braun/Prince Fielder tandem, or up in the two-hole.

Here’s the rest of the lineup:

Rickie Weeks 2B
Carlos Gomez CF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Corey Hart RF
Yuniesky Betancourt SS
Jonathan Lucroy C
Yovani Gallardo RHP
