If the Brewers win 8-0 and no one sees it, does it count?

Let's say it counts, for now.

W: Marco Estrada (2-0)
L: Josh Johnson (0-1)

HR: None

Box Score

We've gotten spoiled, you guys. It wasn't that long ago that spring training Brewers games on TV were a rare event to be celebrated. Now it's rare when they're NOT on, so missing today's 8-0 win over the Padres was something of a disappointment.

A midwestern daytime television audience missed an opportunity today to watch Marco Estrada have the best outing by a Brewers starter this spring. He pitched 5.2 innings (he's only the second Brewer starter to complete four innings this spring) and did not allow a run, scattering five hits. He walked none and struck out six in the outing.

He was aided by Scooter Gennett's first big offensive day of the spring. The Brewers' lefty second baseman hit RBI doubles to drive home Jeff Bianchi as part of run-scoring innings in both the third and fifth. Three of his five hits this spring have been for extra bases and driven in runs.

Jeff Bianchi, as mentioned previously, reached base twice and scored a pair of runs. He also stole his fourth base of the spring. Martin Maldonado had a pair of hits, scored a run and drove one in.

The Brewers are now 7-9 on the spring and return to Maryvale tomorrow to host the Diamondbacks. Wily Peralta will take on Randall Delgado at 3:05 Central time.
