Worth noting

• With left-hander Jon Niese on the mound for New York on Thursday, Rickie Weeks replaced Scooter Gennett at second base and atop the lineup. Manager Ron Roenicke said he didn't consider anyone else to bat leadoff.

• Before Aramis Ramirez's second-inning solo blast Thursday night, the Brewers hadn't homered since June 5, the series finale against Minnesota. "I haven't even thought about it," Roenicke said before the game.
