NLCS Game 6: Milwaukee Brewers Lineup

The Brewers are deploying a dekotsayed lineup again, putting Nyjer Morgan back up in the #2 hole against right-hander Edwin Jackson:

Corey Hart - RF
Nyjer Morgan* - CF
Ryan Braun - LF
Prince Fielder* - 1B
Rickie Weeks - 2B
Jerry Hairston - 3B
Yuniesky Betancourt - SS
Jonathan Lucroy - C
Shaun Marcum - P

And because I'm a weak, weak man, here are the microsplits that don't mean anything. Still can't help but look at them.

Yuniesky Betancourt 28 6 0 1 3 .231 .250 .269
Ryan Braun 16 5 0 1 2 .333 .375 .533

Whoa. Betancourt doesn't hit Jackson well. Looks like their playoff slugger has been neutralized. Dig those Corey Hart splits. Man, those at-bats would be interesting if we knew which microsplits to pay attention to.

Other than that, it's the pretty standard Brewers lineup. If there was one option available to Ron Roenicke, it would have been to put George Kottaras in for Lucroy to get another lefty bat, but Edwin Jackson hasn't shown any platoon splits over his career (.770 OPS vs. RHB, .778 vs. LHB).
