Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2009-04-23
--SS J.J. Hardy was dropped from the fifth spot in the lineup to sixth Wednesday, switching with CF Mike Cameron. Hardy was batting .125 at the time, and Macha said he "was trying too hard." The move seemed to jump-start Hardy, who hit a single and a home run in his first two at-bats off Philadelphia RHP Joe Blanton. Cameron also prospered with a two-run double.

--RHP Todd Coffey had not allowed a run in 16 appearances with the Brewers since being claimed off waivers from Cincinnati until Philadelphia RF Jayson Werth hit a one-out home run off him in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday night. Coffey allowed two more hits but closed out the Phillies in a 3-1 victory, recording his second consecutive save.

--SS J.J. Hardy and RF Corey Hart showed up at Citi Field on April 19 with their hair dyed jet black. The look was more striking for Hart because he normally has blond hair and also had his beard dyed. The players said they were trying to "change things up" after the Brewers struggled to a 3-8 start. Naturally, the players took considerable ribbing from their teammates. "You look like Abraham Lincoln," 1B Prince Fielder told Hart.

BY THE NUMBERS: 0 -- Runs scored off RHP Todd Coffey in 16 appearances with the Brewers since being claimed on waivers from Cincinnati last September.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "If you see me come in with black hair, you know we're in big trouble." -- Manager Ken Macha, after SS J.J. Hardy and RF Corey Hart dyed their hair black to change the team's luck.
