Jim Henderson recorded his first four-out save and the Milwaukee Brewers got just enough offense to knock off the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Tuesday night at AT&T Park. In winning the Brewers improved to a major-league best 40-0 when leading after eight innings. “Last time I tried to go more than three outs I failed” said Henderson who was referring to a game last August in Houston. “I want to prove that I can do that and help the team any way I can. If it’s four outs five outs six outs that was a goal in the off-season to come in and do something like that. It’s going to help my future in the game. “At some point you’re going to have to get more than three outs.” The Brewers got onto the board first in the second when Carlos Gomez launched a one-out home run off Matt Cain into the bleachers in left – the first homer for either team in the series to that point. They doubled that lead in the fourth when Norichika Aoki led off with a double moved to third on a groundout by Jean Segura and then scored when Giants catcher Buster Posey fired a pickoff throw into left field. “When you’re not going to go out there and just bash the ball around and score five-plus runs a game you can’t make mistakes” manager Ron Roenicke said when asked about taking advantage of opportunities. “We know they’re going to play us tough we know they’re going to pitch us tough so those little things – the bunts the steals – are huge.” Brewers starter Wily Peralta meanwhile was cruising. He already had six strikeouts through four innings before finally running into a little trouble in the fifth when Roger Kieschnick singled with one out and Gregor Blanco walked. Cain moved the runners into scoring position with a bunt but Peralta buckled down and eventually got Marco Scutaro to ground out to third to end the threat. San Francisco again got runners onto second and third in the seventh against Peralta but this time with one out. As Peralta left in favor of Brandon Kintzler Joaquin Arias came on to pinch-hit for Cain and drove a run in with a groundout to second base. Kintzler then induced an inning-ending flyout to right by Scutaro to allow the Brewers to hold onto the lead at 2-1. Peralta (8-11) exited having allowed five hits and one earned run while walking two and striking out six in a 6 1/3-inning 108-pitch outing. “Wily really nice” Roenicke said. “He gave us the innings. I know he got in trouble there the last inning but his fastball was down in the zone with great life. He’s really starting to like the changeup and the slider to the point where he’s mixing it in his arsenal more often. “Anytime he can do that with the fastball he has he’s going to be really tough to hit.”
