• Asked whether Ryan Braun's day off Wednesday was scheduled or a response to pain in his troublesome right hand, Roenicke said it was "just the same thing," an indication Braun's hand was flaring up again. He was 1-for-8 in the Cardinals series and 5-for-20 on the homestand with no home runs and no RBIs entering Wednesday.

"We'll try to do what we can to get him better for the next day," Roenicke said.

• Reliever Brandon Kintzler played catch Wednesday and expects to return to action immediately when his 15-day disabled list stint expires next week. The Brewers don't believe he will need a Minor League rehabilitation assignment.

Logan Schafer's batting average rose Wednesday while he was sitting on the Brewers' bench. Major League Baseball changed Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard's run-scoring error in Milwaukee's 9-4 win last Wednesday to an RBI double for Schafer. The switch came as welcome news to Roenicke, who called the official scorer's initial ruling "ridiculous."
