Maldonado hits grand slam, Brewers beat Padres 4-3
MILWAUKEE 4, SAN DIEGO 3

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke played 10 rookies
Tuesday night. One of them made quite a splash.



Martin Maldonado hit a grand slam to lead Milwaukee to a 4-3
victory over the San Diego Padres.



"I thought we had a Nashville Sounds game," Maldonado said with
a big smile, referring to the Brewers' Triple-A team in the
Pacific Coast League.



Maldonado connected against Anthony Bass (2-8) in the third
inning for his first career slam and eighth home run of the
year. The backup catcher, whose playing time decreased in August
when starter Jonathan Lucroy returned from a broken bone in his
hand, was in a 1-for-16 slump when he delivered.



Maldonado said it was difficult to hit for power when not
playing much.



"It is, especially when you only get to play once a week," he
said. "It's hard, but you have to keep doing your thing and
working hard."



Jim Henderson (1-2) pitched a perfect seventh for his first
major league win. The right-hander pitched in 313 minor league
games over 10 seasons before having his contract selected by the
Brewers from Nashville on July 26 and making his big league
debut that day.



Milwaukee starter Tyler Thornburg did not pitch the five innings
needed to qualify for a win, and official scorer Tim O'Driscoll
credited it to Henderson, who was pitching in his 35th career
game.



Henderson did not realize he was credited with the win until
talking to reporters after the game, and said he didn't save any
memento.



"It was on the board there, and I thought it was false," he
said.



John Axford worked the ninth for his 35th save in 44 chances,
getting Logan Forsythe to ground out with a runner on third to
end it.



"Got into trouble quick, but luckily got out of it," Axford
said.



The Brewers started Thornburg and fellow rookies Norichika Aoki,
Logan Schafer, Maldonado, Taylor Green, Jean Segura, Jeff
Bianchi and Maldonado. Rookie Eric Farris pinch-hit and rookies
Brandon Kintzler and Henderson pitched in relief.



"It's great when you can rest some guys that you need to rest,"
Roenicke said.



The Padres started Bass, who has been pitching in relief since
returning from a shoulder injury in early September. He was
limited to 60 pitches, and allowed only one hit and one walk in
the first two innings, but ran into trouble as his pitch count
climbed in the third.



With one out in a scoreless game, Aoki singled and stole second.
Schafer struck out but Bass then issued consecutive walks to
Ryan Braun and Travis Ishikawa.



Pitching coach Darren Balsley visited the mound, but Bass stayed
in the game and Maldonado hit the right-hander's 56th pitch into
the left-field bleachers to give Milwaukee a 4-0 lead.



"Physically, I felt fine," Bass said. "It's one of those things
where you have to execute a pitch in those situations and I
didn't."



Will Venable's RBI single scored Chase Headley in the fourth to
pull San Diego to 4-1.



The Padres scored twice off reliever Manny Parra in the sixth to
make it 4-3. Headley singled, moved to second on Yonder Alonso's
walk and scored on pitch-hitter Jesus Guzman's single. Venable
was hit by a pitch to load the bases, chasing Parra.



Pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal's infield single off Kameron Loe
scored Guzman to make it 4-3. Loe struck out pinch-hitter Carlos
Quentin to leave the bases loaded.



The Brewers loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but
reliever Brad Boxberger got Schafer to pop out and Braun to
strike out to end the threat.



NOTES: The Brewers scratched RHP Yovani Gallardo for Wednesday's
start, opting to rest their ace instead of having him pitch in a
meaningless game. Josh Stinson will start instead. ... Headley
was selected NL player of the month for September. He won the
award in August, too. ... Roenicke said before the game that the
entire coaching staff would return in 2013. ... Roenicke said
most of the starting position players likely would play in the
season finale Wednesday.
