The Brewers played longball with the Dodgers today, hitting five home runs, including two off of former Brewer Claudio Vargas.
Manny Parra started and struggled, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks in just 3.2 innings, but he did strike out 6 of the 11 batters he retired. David Riske relieved him and allowed a bases-loaded double to Andre Ethier to tie the game at five, but was credited with the win when the Brewers pulled ahead for good in the bottom of the fourth.
Ryan Braun started in left today for the first time since the start of the WBC, and walked in both of his plate appearances before leaving with tightness in his intercostal muscle. Casey McGehee continued his torrid spring, going 2-for-3 with a home run and driving in four.
