Giants Drop A 7-3 Game In Scottsdale, Brewers Pick It Up Off Ground

A US Presswire photographer apparently showed up in Scottsdale today, took a few pictures like this one of Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford during BP, then left. Maybe he went to Shotgun Betty's. It sounds like a classy place.

W: Frankie De La Cruz (1-0)
L: Sergio Romo (0-1)

HR: Zelous Wheeler (1),Travis Ishikawa (1), Aubrey Huff (1)

Today the Brewers practiced the art of capitalizing on someone else's mistakes. Tonight's game was tied at 3 in the top of the seventh when Travis Ishikawa lofted a fly ball almost directly at Giants left fielder Justin Christian. He failed to use both hands, dropped it and two runs scored to give the Brewers a lead they never relinquished. They tacked on single runs in the eighth and ninth to coast to a 7-3 victory.

Chris Narveson became the latest Brewer starter to start strong this spring, pitching a pair of perfect innings to lead off the game. He was followed to the mound by Jose Veras, who allowed an unearned run on a hit, and Wily Peralta, who gave up a run in each of his two innings. Frankie De La Cruz also made his spring debut tonight, as did Tim Dillard and Josh Butler.

The Brewers didn't score until the sixth tonight, but put up three runs against veteran reliever Jeremy Affeldt in that frame. Zelous Wheeler had the big blow, scoring two runs with the Brewers' first homer of the spring.

Finally, tonight's game offered us a fascinating broadcast problem: MLB Network was supposed to televise tonight's game live but picked it up 20 minutes late, so this recap is actually going up before the game telecast is over.

The Brewers are back on TV again tomorrow, taking on the A's at 2 pm Central time on FS Wisconsin.
