Braun is back for Brewers

Left fielder Ryan Braun must have made more progress on Monday with his balky left leg, because he is back in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the four-game series at Arizona on Tuesday night. Braun, who was out of the lineup for the 10th time in 13 games Monday, tested his leg in batting practice but did not appear in the team’s 3-0 loss.

Braun’s return did not mean a move back to the top of the batting order for Rickie Weeks, who is hitting fifth for the fourth consecutive game. The Brewers have had trouble getting production from that slot this season.

Here’s the full lineup:

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

You have Weeks leading off AND batting 5th

Wow, two Rickie Weeks!

Aahh good eye!

Someday maybe someone will sit down with me over a beer (or 2 or 3) and ‘splain to me why Yuni B is back in the starting lineup. Josh Wilson was doing just fine, was he not?

WOW REALLY ? RE-READ IT… IT states that “Braun’s return did not mean a move back to the top of the batting order for Rickie Weeks” in which means that jsut cause Braun is back does not mean Weeks got moved back to the lead off position..

I am with you Terry, I would like to see Wilson get more starts with the way Yuni is playing this year..

braun pull your crap together your a good player I work with the elderly and lift sometimes350 lbs. of weight, body weight I dislike people that are not as strong as me I’m 60 years old hope this is inspirational . your contract is “sealed” isn’t?
