The Milwaukee Brewers blanked the UW-Milwaukee Panthers 8-0 in their exhibition opener yesterday in Phoenix. The Brewers blanked the Panthers as eight pitchers combined on a 1-hitter.
Reliever Jim Henderson pitched in a game for the first time since May 2 of last season, working a hitless inning.
Manager Ron Roenicke was pleased with Henderson’s work. Roenicke said, “He threw some sliders down, which I liked. He missed with them down but I still liked it. The ball looked like it came out free.”
The Brewers play their Cactus League opener in Tempe, Arizona this afternoon. Kyle Lohse will get the start for the Brewers. Barring an upset, Lohse is expected to be the Brewers starting pitcher on opening day.
