Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that he hasn’t decided whether Scooter Gennett or Carlos Gomez will bat leadoff.
"I still go back and forth on that," Roenicke said. "Scooter has been doing a pretty good job at it. I'd like to at least have a couple guys doing it a few times down here, so I don't go Scooter all spring and then Opening Day go 'Gomey.' Roenicke would surely prefer to have Gennett hit first and Gomez in a run-producing spot. However, the skipper prefers to keep the same player hitting leadoff versus righties and lefties, and Gennett needs to improve against southpaws. Gennett looks pegged for seventh in the order if he doesn’t bat leadoff, so quite a bit of his fantasy value rides on the decision. Mar 17 - 10:55 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that Scooter Gennett will be given a chance to play against left-handed pitching next season.

He platooned with Rickie Weeks in 2014, but Weeks is a free agent and the Brewers don't have another viable platoon mate on the roster. Gennett has just 10 hits in 78 career at-bats versus lefties with the big club but had a slightly more respectable .259/.294/.349 slash line against southpaws in the minors.

Gennett got the scoring started with a two-run single in the third inning and tacked on an RBI double in the fifth. The diminutive second baseman finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now hitting a terrific .298/.330/.455 with 50 RBI on the season.

Scooter Gennett hit an RBI double in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Padres.

The Brew Crew's bats were mostly held down by the Padres' pitching staff. Gennett hit a ground rule double off of Padres starter Tyson Ross in the fourth inning to score Jonathan Lucroy, but that would be all the damage the Brewers could manage. It was Gennett's 26th double and 46th RBI. Scooter's been red-hot in August, slashing .354/.360/.479 for the month.

Elian Herrera came on to play defense in Gennett's place in the bottom half of the sixth. The Brewers will wait until a doctor evaluates Gennett to discuss his prognosis.
