• Roenicke said reliever Jim Henderson had looked better in each of his recent outings but that the bullpen status quo would continue until further notice. That means Francisco Rodriguez remains the closer.
"We'll see," Roenicke said. "I don't want to lock myself into what can happen and where guys are going to be."
• Roenicke on Tuesday managed his 500th regular-season game, making him the sixth Brewers manager to reach that mark. Before season's end he will pass Del Crandall, who managed 609 games for the Brewers and is one of Roenicke's mentors. Roenicke played for Crandall at Triple-A Albuquerque in the early 1980s.
