"I definitely could have done better with that, and pitch selection," Lorenzen said, per MLB.com. "I felt good, everything felt really good. I think sometimes you second-guess yourself and throw some pitches and there's no conviction behind them. That's what happens sometimes. You just learn from it."
Friday's performance marks the shortest start for Lorenzen. He came into the evening having allowed four earned runs over his previous three starts.
"He was excellent, the last two starts have been really, really good and tonight was probably his best one," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "He was just in control the whole time. They never really had a threat against him. … It was a night that the bullpen needed rest and so it was in that sense exactly what we needed."
