Brewers manager back after night in the hospital

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke didn't get much chance to celebrate his team's 7-4 victory Monday ending a five-game losing streak.
He spent Monday night in the hospital after throwing out his back. He was better Tuesday and at Wrigley Field.

****************
Cubs pitcher Matt Garza threw on the side again Tuesday and will have several most such sessions before going to a minor league rehab. But the timetable for his return is at least another month.
``You're talking about four weeks,'' manager Dale Sveum said.
The better news is that second baseman Darwin Barney, who suffered a deep knee cut on the last day of spring training, will play Saturday, Sunday and Monday in a minor league rehab--the location yet to be determined--to be ready to play in Tuesday's series opener against the Texas Rangers.
Sveum is as anxious for Barney to return for his Gold Glove fielding as his bat.
``You miss that defense and the lack of striking out,'' he said. ``That defense is the best in baseball.''
