 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers and manager Craig Counsell have agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2020 season.
   General manager David Stearns made the announcement on Friday at Miller Park.
   The 46-year-old Counsell just finished his first full season as skipper. He has a 134-165 record since taking over in May 2015 for the fired Ron Roenicke.
   The rebuilding Brewers finished 73-89 this past season, a five-win improvement from 2015.
   Counsell grew up in the Milwaukee area. His father, John, worked in the Brewers front office in the 1980s.
