Victorino batting second

Victorino batting second


A couple pieces of news to relay as we get set for Game 4 here at Miller Park.

First, Charlie Manuel has moved Shane Victorino back up to the No. 2 spot, putting Jayson Werth at No. 6. The Phillies got zero production out of the bottom half of their line-up last night, so I suspect this is an attempt at rectifying that problem.

Second, the Brewers will be without second baseman Rickie Weeks, who has a torn meniscus in his knee. Ray Durham is starting in his place and batting No. 2.

Third, it is Thunder Stick afternoon here at Miller Park. If you aren't aware of what Thunder Sticks are like, imagine sitting inside a giant bass drum while a junior high school band member who hasn't quite learned the intricacies of rhythm pounds away.
