Brewers 7, Royals 5

Win: Wily Peralta
Loss: Kyle Davies

HR: Carlos Gomez (2), Escobar (1)

Injuries: Yuniesky Betancourt left the game early due to tightness in his quad and Caleb Gindl left with a right knee sprain after running into the outfield wall. 

  • Takashi Saito didn't pitch great in his return to camp after checking in on family caught in the disaster in Japan.  He gave up two runs on four hits in one inning.  It would be hard to blame him for struggling, though, as he still has at least two family members unaccounted for, according to Michael Hunt
  • Carlos Gomez had a nice game, scoring two runs and driving in two on a home run during a 2-3 day.  It was the Brewers first game against the Royals in spring training, and therefore was Gomez' first chance to go head to head against Lorenzo Cain, who was the likely Milwaukee CF before the Greinke trade.  Cain only managed a single, though he did throw out Casey McGehee at home plate. 
  • Today, Alcides Escobar was the better of the two shortstops traded between the teams this winter.  Betancourt went 1-1 before leaving with the aforementioned quad injury.  Alcides was 1-3, but his hit was better--an inside the park HR.  
  • Mark Defelice and Pat Egan were the only Brewers pitchers to not give up a run.
  • Wil Nieves (2-2, double) and Jeremy Reed (3-4, triple) both had good days.
