(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The first career hit for Milwaukee rookie Nate Orf was a game-winning home run against the Twins Wednesday.  Milwaukee won the game at Miller Park 3-2.  A homer-saving catch by outfielder Keon Broxton was just as important as the Brewers completed the three-game sweep.  Travis Shaw and Brad Miller also hit homers for Milwaukee.  Jeremy Jeffress picked up his sixth win in relief.  The Brewers send right-hander Jhoulys Chacin to the mound to start Thursday’s opener of a four-game series against Atlanta.

>>Davante Adams:  Rookie WR Moore Offers Great Potential

(Green Bay, WI)  —  He’s been a standout so far and Davante Adams says he’s expecting big things from rookie wide receiver J’Mon Moore.  The veteran Adams and Moore have lockers next to each other.  Moore can start living up to that potential when training camp opens three weeks from today.  He made the strongest impression during organized team activities, but other rookies were also impressive.  Moore’s combination of speed and size seems to set him apart.
