Brewers radio announcers locked in broadcast booth during game

Thursday May 7th, 2015

While broadcasting the Brewers game against the Dodgers on Wednesday, Milwaukee's radio announcers were locked in the broadcast booth after the booth's doorknob fell off at Miller Park. 

Legendary Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker was among those locked in the booth. 

A handyman had to use a ladder to "rescue" the trapped broadcasters, who seem to have made it through the ordeal without much harm.

The Brewers, who hired manager Craig Counsell earlier this week, defeated the Dodgers 6–3 for their fourth win in their last five games. Adam Lind and Scooter Gennett each had two RBIs, while starter Wily Peralta allowed two earned runs over eight innings. The Brewers improved to 9–19, while Los Angeles fell to 17–10.
