Sunday lineup; Monday plan

The Brewers face knuckleballer R.A. Dickey at Citi Field this afternoon and are seeking a three-game sweep. reporter and Yao Ming clone John Schlegel has the preview, including all of the details of the Brewers’ stunning streak. They have won 21 of 24 and 30 of 40, a run that’s given them the biggest division lead of any team in Major League Baseball.

Here’s the lineup:

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

In news from the team’s daily media notes, the Brewers have lined up their starters for Monday’s doubleheader in Pittsburgh, which the Pirates so kindly have scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. local time, 4 p.m. CT. Lefty Chris Narveson, coming off the disabled list, will start the opening game, with Zack Greinke following in the nightcap.

I’ll get some comment from Ron Roenicke about how that decision was reached.
