Ryan Braun is back in the lineup and Aramis Ramirez is at DH as the Brewers try for the series sweep.

Today, the Brewers attempt to do something that they have not done in a long time.  They will try to sweep the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Ryan Braun is back in today's lineup after taking yesterday off to rest his thumb.  In addition, Aramis Ramirez will take the DH spot to get a day off from the field.  Jean Segura is taking the day off, which means that Mark Reynolds, Lyle Overbay, and Jeff Bianchi are all in the lineup today.

Here is the complete lineup from the Brewers Twitter account:

Yovani Gallardo will make his second start of the season.  He pitched six scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks with four strikeouts.  He has made one previous start against the Red Sox, and it was one to forget.  In three innings, he allowed eight runs (five earned) on nine hits.

On the other side, Opening Day starter Jon Lester will start for the Red Sox.  He has made one previous start against the Brewers, where he pitched eight innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits (3 of those home runs), 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts.  In his one start of this season, he pitched 7 innings and allowed 2 runs with 8 strikeouts, but took the loss.

Today's game is at 12:35 pm, and it wil be on FS Wisconsin.
