Double your pleasure: Brewers ride wave of doubles to win over Reds

And Matt Garza was good too!

W: Matt Garza (1-2)
L: Mike Leake (0-1)

HR: Jonathan Lucroy (2)

Box Score

I don't know what the Brewers had for a postgame meal on Sunday, but it'd be understandable if they went to In-N-Out Burger for a double-double. The team combined for seven doubles in a 9-1 win over the Reds this afternoon.

The most notable offensive day may have come from Lyle Overbay, who learned he'd made the team less than 24 hours earlier. He went 3-for-4 with two doubles in the game, scoring a run and driving one in. He entered the game with just four hits on the spring, and these were his first of the extra-base variety. Logan Schafer also had two doubles in the game, and Scooter Gennett had his fifth of the spring. The Brewers haven't had seven doubles in a regular season game since April 22, 2000.

That was more than enough offensive support for Matt Garza, who turned in a reassuringly solid performance in one of his final spring outings. He pitched six innings today and allowed a single run on four hits, walking two and striking out six. The outing lowered his Cactus League ERA to 10.03.

The Brewers are now back to 12-14 on the spring with three games left to play in the Cactus League. They're off Monday before returning home to host the Giants on Tuesday.
