Brewers Lose 0-3 for 2nd Straight Time

Milwaukee starter Victor Santos (3-11) took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Hennessey hit a 2-0 pitch for his first homer in 30 career at-bats.

"I was prepared to never hit a home run in my career in the big-leagues," said Hennessey, who added that he had got two balls to the wall in batting practice at SBC Park in San Francisco. "Now, I can relax. It's like icing on the cake."

Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said the problem was the pitches that preceded the homer.

"The mistake that he made wasn't the 2-0 fastball right down the middle, it was getting to 2-0 on the guy," he said. "You get the situation set up to get to the pitcher.

Doug Davis (9-7) will face Kirk Rueter (2-7) on Friday.
