Brewers (39-32) vs Red Sox (42-27)

The Brewers send veteran lefty Randy Wolf (4-4, 3.20 ERA) to the hill to try and cool down the scorching hot Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park. Boston boasts the best record in the American League and has won 12 of their last 13 contests. Fellow southpaw Jon Lester (9-2, 3.73 ERA), who has never faced Milwaukee in his career, takes the ball for the AL East leaders. Ron Roenicke’s lineup for game two of the series looks a bit different than normal.

1. DH – Rickie Weeks

2. RF – Corey Hart

3. LF – Ryan Braun

4. 1B – Prince Fielder

5. 3B – Casey McGehee

6. SS – Yuniesky Betancourt

7. 2B – Josh Wilson

8. CF – Carlos Gomez

9. C – George Kottaras

In other news, the Brewers recalled reliever Mark DiFelice from Triple-A Nashville after designating Danny Herrera for assignment last night. DiFelice appeared in 59 games for the Brewers in 2009 before having shoulder surgery late in the season, forcing him to miss all of 2010. The right-hander went 4-1 with a 3.66 ERA in ’09 and should be available to pitch if needed in tonight’s ballgame.
