Manny Parra was not impressive in his debut, and if the Brewers are going to contend in any way, that can't continue. Rickie Weeks is noticeably absent from tonight's lineup. As a bonus, here's the lineup splits against Mr. Arroyo:
2B Craig Counsell - .368/.455/.368, 22 PAs.
RF Corey Hart - .200/.188/.200, 16 PAs.
LF Ryan Braun - .250/.333/.313, 18 PAs
1B Prince Fielder - .346/.387/.769, 31 PAs
SS J.J. Hardy - .263/.263/.579, 19 PAs
CF Mike Cameron - .333/.368/.444, 19 PAs
3B Bill Hall - .125/.176/.313, 17 PAs
C Jason Kendall - .240/.296/.240
LHP Manny Parra - .000 across the board, in 2 PAs
In case you were wondering, Rickie Weeks has struggled mightily against Bronson, with a .050/.136/.050 line in 22 PAs. You'll have to look the Reds up yourself.
CF Willy Taveras
LF Jerry Hairston
1B Joey Votto
2B Brandon Phillips
RF Jay Bruce
3B Edwin Encarnacion
C Ryan Hannigan
SS Paul Janish
RHP Bronson Arroyo
If Parra can post a solid effort there is every reason to believe that they can put this losing streak behind them, and provide some momentum for tomorrow when they face the Reds worst pitcher, Micah Owings, with Braden Looper on the hill.
