Angels 9, Brewers 5

W: Joel Pineiro
L: Jeff Suppan

As is typically the case when Jeff Suppan starts, it was a tough day for Brewer pitchers. Suppan allowed nine Angels to bat in the first inning as they scored five runs on five hits, including a home run by Bobby Abreu. He recovered to last two more innings, but finished with a final line of three innings, five runs on six hits, three walks and four strikeouts.

Suppan has now allowed 18 hits and 12 earned runs in 12 innings this spring: No other Brewer has allowed more than 12 and 7, respectively. He's also allowed six home runs - no other Brewer has allowed more than one.

All told, each of the first four pitchers to appear for the Brewers allowed at least one run: Chris Smith allowed a run in two innings of work, Claudio Vargas allowed two runs in one inning, and Trevor Hoffman, making his spring debut, allowed a run on two hits and a walk in his inning. Todd Coffey pitched two scoreless innings to finish the game.

On offense, the Brewers got a two-run home run from George Kottaras, a triple from Carlos Gomez and a double from Luis Cruz. Kottaras and Gomez each finished the game with two hits.

In the early innings of the game Jim Edmonds collided with Joel Pineiro, leaving Pineiro with a bruise above his right eye. Pineiro said he's fine and expects to make his next start.
