• Roenicke flipped Alex Gonzalez and Yuniesky Betancourt's positions on Sunday, moving Betancourt to third base and Gonzalez back to first, where he played most of the spring before moving to third when Aramis Ramirez was injured.

"I'm seeing if maybe that gets him swinging the bat a little bit better," Roenicke said of Gonzalez, who entered the day batting .136 with four RBIs. "He's frustrated about it, but we need to get him going."

• Outfielder Logan Schafer delivered the Brewers' first successful squeeze bunt of the season in Saturday's win over the Cubs and predicted he'd have more chances.

"I've bunted quite a bit in the Minor Leagues on my way up," Schafer said. "That's in my arsenal. It does feel great. I've done it enough that I expect it [to be successful]. ... When you see [Ryan] Braun crossing the plate before the ball is even picked up, that's always nice."

• The Brewers open a three-game series in San Diego on Monday. The last time they played a series opener there, Braun belted three home runs and came close to a historic fourth, settling for a two-run triple that bounced just shy of the warning track in right-center field. The Padres brought the fences in at Petco Park over the winter, and that triple may have been another home run with the new dimensions.
