McGehee out of Brewers lineup again

At first glance, Casey McGehee's 3 for 13 career mark against Cardinals starter Edwin Jackson is less than noteworthy -- but the other three in his line raises some eyebrows. All three of McGehee's hits against the right-hander are homers, and they came in the same game.

In a 10-5 Brewers victory, McGehee hit three homers and knocked in five against Jackson, who was making his second start for the Cardinals after coming over in the three-way trade that sent Colby Rasmus and brought Jackson from the White Sox.

Even with that big game under his belt, McGehee isn't in the lineup for Monday's Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against Jackson and the Cardinals.

"I wish we could put one more player in the lineup, if we were in the American League, he'd be in there," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "It's tough. The first game he faced him this year he had the three homers and then didn't get any hits off of him his next two games. But yeah, it would have been real tempting to get him in there. I just don't know how to do it with (Jerry) Hairston, the way he's playing defensively and offensively. It's hard to take him out."

Six days after McGehee's three-homer day in August, Jackson faced the Brewers again and held McGehee hitless in four at-bats, striking him out once and then on Aug. 30, McGehee was 0 for 3 against Jackson.

McGehee, 28, has struggled all season, hitting .223/.280/.346 during the regular season, but just .182/.257/.338 with five home runs since his three-homer game. He hasn't started a game in the postseason and had one hit in three pinch-hit appearances in the NLDS.
