MARYVALE, Ariz. (AP) — Former closer Jim Henderson threw a scoreless inning in his first outing since May and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin 8-0 on Wednesday.
In a game for the first time since ending last season with a shoulder injury May 2, Henderson walked one and struck out two in the second inning. He saved 28 games for Milwaukee in 2013 but went 2-1 with a 7.15 ERA in 14 games last year. Henderson had arthroscopic surgery in August.
Khris Davis and Juan Centeno had two-run singles for the Brewers, who didn’t have their first hit until Davis’ single with two outs in the fourth. Elian Hererra had a pair of RBI singles.
Seven Brewers pitchers held Wisconsin-Milwaukee to just one hit, a single by senior right fielder Derek Peake in the fourth, and struck out 15.
