Another start for Kotsay

Mark Kotsay (5-for-14, .357 lifetime against Nationals starter Jason Marquis) is back in center field today as the  Brewers aim to extend their five-game winning streak and their eight-game home winning streak.

Here’s some perspective from Mike Vassallo and the club’s PR staff: The Brewers are three games over .500 for the first time since July 18, 2009, when they were 47-44. Hard to believe that coming off the excitement of the ’08 Wild Card, they’ve been so mediocre for nearly two years.

Here are the lineups:

Roger Bernadina CF
Ian Desmond SS
Jayson Werth RF
Laynce Nix LF
Michael Morse 1B
Danny Espinosa 2B
Ivan Rodriguez C
Jerry Hairston 3B
Jason Marquis RHP

Rickie Weeks 2B
Corey Hart RF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Mark Kotsay CF
Jonathan Lucroy C
Craig Counsell SS
Zack Greinke RHP
