Maybe John Lamb will be more successful in giving up dingers than the quartet of pitchers for the Reds last night. And maybe the Brewers' pen can get back to not giving up runs. Maybe the Brewers can get to .500 in the second half. For sure, I'll enjoy watching baseball tonight.

The Brewers go with their 'vs. lefty' lineup, with Ramon Flores moving to centerfield and Hernan Perez in right. Perez hits second, with Scooter Gennett moving to sixth.

For the Reds, Brandon Phillips is day to day with a calf strain, and Jose Peraza takes his place at second base.


Who is the Brewers' leader in homers in the second half?
