Sogard will lead off for the third straight day Friday, playing left field against the Cubs, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The hot-hitting recent call-up will keep his important lineup role, this time logging his first professional reps in left field for the sidelined Ryan Braun (calf). Sogard may keep a place in the lineup for as long as Braun is out, though it's a safe bet to say he'll slow down a bit in the near future. Either way, it's hard to ignore his absurd 10-for-17 start to the season, with three doubles, two home runs and seven RBI.
