Weeks is back with a flourish in Monday’s win over LA

Three top sidestories dominated the Brewers 9-5 win over LA Monday night:
* Rickie Weeks returned to the leadoff spot after four days off to rest a sore wrist…and went 4-for-5 with 3 ribbies
* Prince Fielder smashed two homers to up his 2007 total to 14, now tied with J.J. Hardy for best in the NL
* Billy Hall was dropped to the 7th in the batting order…and responded by going 2-for-4
Ned Yost also gave work to four middle relievers, spelling Jeff Suppan, who earned his 6th win despite 4 ER in 6 IP. Craig Counsell went 2-for-3, and scored a pair, to up his BA to .239. Ben Sheets (4-2, 3.86) goes tonight in quest of matching his Opening Day start against the same Dodgers team.
