Brewers aim for single-digit magic

The Brewers can reduce their magic number to clinch the National League Central to nine tonight, as they continue a three-game series against the Cardinals with Yovani Gallardo on the mound.

No Jerry Hairston for Milwaukee. He exited yesterday’s game with a stiff neck, but could be sitting simply because he’s 2-for-15 lifetime against Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse. Craig Counsell gets the nod at second base instead. He’s 14-for-29 against Lohse.

At third, it’s not the upstart Taylor Green but Casey McGehee, who’s 5-for-16 against Lohse.

Here’s the lineup:

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