Brewers 15 , Reds 2


W: Gallardo (2-0)

L: Bailey (0-1)

HR: Boggs(1), Gomez (1), Almonte (2)

While the score would lead you to believe that offense was the story today, the more intriguing storyline was the pitching, as Yovani Gallardo, John Axford, Kameron Loe combined for a three-hit, nine strikeout first six innings.

Gallardo pitched three innings, giving up two hits while racking up five strikeouts. Axford pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts. Loe gave up one hit in two innings pitched with two strikeouts. Zach Braddock struggled a little, going one inning and giving up a home run and a hit batsman. Mark DiFelice took the ninth, giving up a run and two hits while striking out two.

Rule 5 pick Pat Egan made his Spring Training debut and pitched one inning, giving up one hit.

Of course, the offense wasn't too shabby, either as the team put up 25 hits on Reds pitching.

Brandon Boggs started it off with a second inning two-run home run.

With two outs in the third, Betancourt, Almonte, Reed, Kottaras and Boggs all singled, putting three runs on the board, making it 5-0.

In the fourth, Weeks singled, followed by RBI doubles by Gomez and Betancourt. Erick Almonte (4-for-5, 2 RBI) had an RBI single and George Kottaras got the third double of the inning. Boggs finished off the scoring for the inning with an RBI single. It was 8-0 after the fouth.

The Brewers batted around the order and collectively batted for the cycle in the seventh. Zealous Wheeler started it off with a single and a stolen base and was brought home by Eric Farris' RBI ground rule double. Gomez brought him home with a two-run home run. Edwin Maysonet singled and Erick Almonte brought him home with a two-run home run. Mike Rivera was hit by a pitch and Brandon Boggs (4-for-5, 4 RBI) had an RBI triple. Taylor Green's single brought him home. It was 15-0 after the seventh.
