PHOENIX, AZ (WHBL) - Jim Henderson walked the bases loaded before giving up the deciding hit in the eighth inning Thursday night, as the Milwaukee Brewers lost at Arizona 5-3. Martin Prado’s two-run single broke a 3-3 tie, as the National League West-leading Diamondbacks bounced back after being swept for three games by the L-A Dodgers. Henderson took the loss and fell to 3-3, as the Crew dropped its second straight. Wade Miley went eight innings for Arizona. He retired all but one of the final 17 batters he faced, as he improved to 6-7. Brad Ziegler earned his second save. All of Milwaukee’s runs came on homers – a two-run shot by Jonathan Lucroy and a solo blast by Carlos Gomez which gave the Brewers a 3-0 lead, which they later blew. Adam Eaton hit a two-run triple and Jason Kubel had a run-scoring sacrifice fly to tie the game before Henderson’s meltdown. Ryan Braun missed the game to tend to a family medical situation. He was put on Milwaukee’s bereavement list – and if he plays at all before the All-Star break, it won’t be until Sunday. Outfielder Khris Davis was called up from Triple-“A” Nashville to take Braun’s roster spot. The Brewers will try to even their four-game series when they play Game-Two tonight in Phoenix. Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will start against Diamondbacks’ southpaw Patrick Corbin. Pregame on WHBL begins at 8:05.
