Brewers trying to avoid sweep

Manager Ken Macha has all of his regulars in the lineup for Sunday’s daytime series finale against the Cubs, as the Brewers try to avoid a three-game sweep. Heck, they’re just trying to score a run in the series after being blanked in the first two games.

Rogers joins Crew for opener vs. Cubs

The field is full of players at the moment, four full hours before game time, and it’s tough to tell who’s who. The Brewers are in their usual Friday throwback mode, wearing royal blue tops for early batting practice that make them extremely easy to confuse with the Cubs out for early work of their own.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to tell the teams apart later on. 
The Brewers have one newcomer at the park today in right-hander Mark Rogers, their first-round Draft pick from 2004 who was recalled from Double-A Huntsville. As reported a couple of days ago, Rogers was already in Milwaukee for his year-end motion analysis, and since he was on the 40-man roster, activating him made a lot of sense. It will be interesting to see how he’s used over the final three-plus weeks of the season, in relief or as a spot starter. Look for more on Rogers later over at Brewers.com.
Here are the lineups:
CUBS
Kosuke Fukudome  RF
Starlin Castro  SS
Marlon Byrd  CF
Micah Hoffpauir  1B
Geovany Soto  C
Alfonso Soriano  LF
Blake DeWitt  2B
