• Right-hander Kyle Lohse downplayed the effect his dislocated left pinkie finger would have on his Sunday start against the Dodgers and left-hander Clayton Kershaw. The injury was to his non-pitching hand, and Lohse has suffered it at least four times before. He said he would be able to handle the pain of swinging the bat.
• Ramirez had another "good day" Saturday of batting and fielding practice and will try running the bases when the Brewers return to Miller Park. He is still less than 100 percent when making quick side-to-side movements, but has been impressive swinging the bat, according to Roenicke.
