With Wolf starting, Kottaras back behind plate
ATLANTA -- George Kottaras was in the Brewers' starting lineup for the second time in three games Friday night, but that had nothing to do with the catcher's two-run homer on Wednesday against the Cubs.

Kottaras always catches Randy Wolf, the starter in the series opener against the Braves at Turner Field.

"It's always good to get in there, but I know what the situation is," said Kottaras, who hit a solo shot off Braves starter Jair Jurrjens in the second inning. "I've caught Randy for a couple of years now."

Kottaras, batting .444, entered the series 3-for-8 with two homers and five RBIs after going 2-for-4 on Wednesday and hit his third homer and drew two walks against the Braves in the 10-8 loss He hit a three-run pinch-hit homer in the season opener last Friday against the Cardinals.

Kottaras and regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy were a combined 8-for-22 in Milwaukee's first seven games, with three homers and eight RBIs.
