• With the offense sputtering and some key hitters like Weeks and Lucroy in deep slumps, Roenicke is trying to consolidate his hot hitters at the top of the lineup. Weeks dropped to hit seventh on Friday.
"It doesn't make sense for me to spread them out," he said. "That's been part of the issue for me. We'll get nine, 10 hits in a game and score one run. It's because those hits are spread out. We really need to group them, and if we can only score runs from one group, then we'll do the best we can with that little group."
• The Brewers on Friday released a limited number of additional tickets to Saturday's Kenny Chesney concert at Miller Park after production adjustments opened space. The tickets were available in the sandbar ($235) and floor ($140) categories. They were for sale at Brewers.com/Chesney.
The concert will also feature special guests Eric Church, The Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves. Miller Park is the fourth stop on Chesney's 17-stop tour and is one of three Major League ballparks on the schedule, with Target Field in Minneapolis and Angel Stadium in Anaheim. It's the first major concert at Miller Park since Farm Aid's 25th anniversary show in 2010.
Later this summer, Paul McCartney will play Miller Park. Those tickets are for sale at Brewers.com/McCartney.
