Bush outstanding in his Minors debut
Dave Bush’s Minor League rehabilitation assignment was off to a rousing start on Friday, when the Brewers right-hander pounded the strike zone throughout a successful 4 2/3 inning stint for Class A Wisconsin.
Working for Milwaukee’s Midwest League affiliate about 100 miles north of Miller Park, Bush scattered four hits and allowed one unearned run in his return to action from a right triceps injury. He struck out five West Michigan Whitecaps and threw 43 of his 53 pitches — 81 percent — for strikes.
Bush had a 1-0 lead until the fifth inning, when an error by third baseman Jose Duran contributed to an unearned run. The Timber Rattlers rallied for a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the inning, but Bush was already out of the game.
Bush has been on the Brewers’ disabled list since June 23 but his injury dates back to June 4, when he was struck on the upper arm by a Hanley Ramirez line drive in Florida.
