Brewers 5, Indians 4

W: Yovani Gallardo

L: David Huff

Things got a little scary in the end when John Halama loaded the bases with only one out but with the help of a great catch by Lorenzo Cain the Crew was able to hang on for a win over the Indians.

It was a good pitching day all around for the Crew. Yovani Gallardo had probably his best start of the spring today. Yo held the Indians to only one hit and one run, while striking out five and (most importantly) walking none. Scott Schoeneweis and Claudio Vargas followed up with clean innings of their own. Tim Dillard allowed a run with his new side-armed motion but struck out his last two batters. Then Michael Fiers, wearing #97 with no name on his back, came in and pitched a quick 1-2-3 inning striking out the side. John Halama allowed two runs in the ninth and almost ruined my recap. 

Meanwhile, on the offensive side, the bats were active early and often today. The Crew scored in each of the first four innings with RBIs from Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Gregg Zaun, and Alcides Escobar. The Brewer offense was kept pretty quiet for the second half of the game as the Indians held the Brewers hitless for the final four innings. The great Adam Heether had not one, but TWO doubles today! Escobar continued his hot hitting with two more hits today, including a double.

Join us again tomorrow as the Brewers take on the Royals at Surprise(!) Stadium at 3:05.
