Dodgers Vs. Brewers: Aaron Miles Batting Fifth, Again

The Los Angeles Dodgers hope to end their two-game losing streak Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, but they will have to battle Zack Greinke to do so. Greinke has started 10 times at home this season, and Milwaukee has won all 10 games. But never fear, the Dodgers have Aaron Miles batting fifth in their starting lineup.
