• Aramis Ramirez tested his sprained left knee on Tuesday by running in the outfield before the game. Running full speed is the final step for the Brewers third baseman in his recovery.
• Infielders Yuniesky Betancourt and Alex Gonzalez flipped defensive positions on Tuesday. On Monday, Betancourt played first and Gonzalez played third. On Tuesday, it was Betancourt at third and Gonzalez at first. Roenicke wouldn't divulge his reasoning, saying the move was strategic.
• Norichika Aoki was back in the lineup on Tuesday, bumping Rickie Weeks to fifth in the order -- the lowest he has hit all season. Both Aoki and Weeks are mired in slumps that, oddly enough, have coincided with the Brewers' eight-game winning streak.
