After last night’s marathon, 16-inning victory, Matt Williams rested three regular starters for today’s series finale with the Brewers. Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa (who is 0 for 11 with six strikeouts in the series) and Jose Lobaton will all start the matinee on the bench. Nate McLouth, Kevin Frandsen and Sandy Leon will step in for them.

The Brewers, meanwhile, will start without stars Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez.
