Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2009-05-04
--LF Ryan Braun was out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game Sunday with upper back tightness. Braun said he believed the problem was connected to the intercostal tightness that plagued him near the end of last season and throughout the spring. "It's all in the same general area," said Braun, who was unable to play on Ryan Braun Bobblehead Day, which drew a sellout crowd to Miller Park.

--SS J.J. Hardy was back in the lineup Sunday after sitting out two days for a "mental break." Hardy had only one hit in 20 at-bats at the time and was batting .156. He admitted to pressing and getting frustrated because "nothing was happening." Hardy went 1-for-4, and his leadoff single in the eighth started the winning rally in a 4-3 victory over Arizona.

BY THE NUMBERS: 2 -- Starts in the No. 3 spot in the batting order for 2B Rickie Weeks, who assumed the role Sunday versus Arizona. Weeks had not batted third since the 2005 season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm going to have OSHA investigate it." -- Brewers manager Ken Macha, referring to the volume on the entrance song of closer Trevor Hoffman, AC/DC's "Hells Bells."
