Back home following a 2-5 road trip, the Brewers pick up their dubious losing skid at home once again, looking to snap the string at Miller Park at eight straight in the L column.  Ken Macha gives catcher Jonathan Lucroy his first major league start behind the plate against the Houston Astros:

2B    RICKIE WEEKS
CF    CARLOS GOMEZ
LF     RYAN BRAUN
1B     PRINCE FIELDER
3B    CASEY McGEHEE
RF    COREY HART
SS    ALCIDES ESCOBAR
C      JONATHAN LUCROY
SP    RANDY WOLF
