Let's Make it 18

The Brewers are falling further back in the NL Central one day at a time, now down to third place. If only our schedule would lighten up a bit so we could get some victories. What's that? The next four teams we play are the Pirates, Braves, Nationals, and Padres? Don't screw this up, Milwaukee.

First things first though as the Brewers will look to make it 18 victories in a row over the Pittsburgh Pirates, although gut feeling says they won't get out of Pittsburgh with a sweep. Then again, I can't believe they've made it 17 in a row already, so you never know.

One thing we do know is that Felipe Lopez won't be starting at second tonight, in fact he won't be in the starting lineup at all. Apparently, he's not even with the team yet, although he should arrive sometime after the first pitch. This, rather, is the starting nine:

2B Craig Counsell
CF Mike Cameron
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
3B Casey McGehee
RF Corey Hart
SS JJ Hardy
C Jason Kendall
P Mike Burns

I'm assuming we'll see Felipe Lopez as the first pinch hitter off of the bench, if he does in fact get to the ballpark. Hopefully Lopez is able to deal with the shock of being traded much better than Jody Gerut has. I'm still not sure Gerut even knows where he is right now, just that every three days he has to go up and swing a bat. Please don't suck, Felipe.
