Garman throws another scoreless inning in start

From staff reports

Brian Garman started another game Wednesday for the Milwaukee Brewers’ rookie league team in Arizona, throwing the first inning in a 4-2 win for the AZL Brewers over the AZL Reds.

The Wapakoneta native made his first rehab assignment start Sunday after not pitching for nearly two months. Wednesday marked his second appearance in four days.

Garman, the Brewers’ 17th-round draft pick in 2010, allowed a leadoff double and then retired the next three batters, two on infield popouts, the other on a flyout to left field.

In a text message to the Wapakoneta Daily News late Wednesday night, Garman said he “threw better than the other night and felt strong again.”

Garman, a 2006 Wapakoneta High School graduate, was sent to the Brewers’ spring training facility in Phoenix, Ariz., in late July to begin rehabilitating a torn labrum.

Prior to Sunday, he last pitched on June 22 with the Huntsville (Ala.) Stars, the Brewers’ Double-A affiliate.

The AZL Brewers have six more regular season games left in 2013.
