Worth noting

• The Brewers have used three or more pitchers in nine of 10 games heading into play Sunday. They used two pitchers, Kyle Lohse and Tom Gorzelanny, in Friday's 2-0 loss.

• First baseman/catcher Blake Lalli made his first start for the Brewers on Saturday. He went 0-for-3 against St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright.

"Sometimes it's a little better to face guys like that," Lalli said. "You've got to really lock it in and focus. It was a good test."

• The Brewers were shut out in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday for the first time since May 1-2, 2012, at San Diego.
