Brewers Adjust NLCS Game 2 Lineup, With Cardinals Righthander Edwin Jackson Pitching

In Game 1, the Cardinals started lefthander Jaime Garcia against the Brewers. Monday night, they’ll go with righthander Edwin Jackson, so Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has made a couple of shifts in his lineup to match:

1. Corey Hart – R – RF
2. Nyjer Morgan – L – CF
3. Ryan Braun – R – LF
4. Prince Fielder – L – 1B
5. Rickie Weeks – R – 2B
6. Jerry Hairston – R – 3B
7. Yuniesky Betancourt – R – SS
8. Jonathan Lucroy – R – C
9. Shaun Marcum – R – P

Nyjer Morgan, whose last plate appearance put the Brewers in this series with his single against the Diamondbacks, will play center field (instead of Carlos Gomez) and bat second. Jerry Hairston remains at third base, but drops to sixth in the order. In recognition of his home run in Game 1, Yuniesky Betancourt gets dropped in the order from sixth to seventh.

The Brewers had 11 hits and three home runs Sunday and are hitting .324 as a team this postseason. Jackson will have to be at his best tonight.
