Milwaukee Brewers

Travis Shaw is back in Brewers' lineup, looking for his work in the batting cage to pay off

Entering Monday, Travis Shaw had only two hits in his last 32 at-bats and had gone 16 consecutive games without a run batted in.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ slump-ridden third baseman was back in the lineup Monday night against Philadelphia after taking some time off over the weekend in Chicago to work on things with hitting coach Andy Haines .

Tom Haudricourt and Olivia Reiner recap the Brewers' homestand and look ahead to their road trip games against the Cubs, Phillies and Braves.

Overall, Shaw was batting .167 – lowest among qualifying hitters in the NL – with four home runs, eight RBI and .550 OPS.

Manager Craig Counsell wanted to give Shaw the series off completely but the 15-inning game changed that.

After taking a 7-0 victory in the opener of the series in Chicago, the Brewers went into shutdown mode offensively, scoring one run in each of the other two games – a 2-1, 15-inning loss on Saturday and 4-1 defeat Sunday night.
