Brewers blow late lead, lose 5-4 to Giants

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Wily Peralta's home run was not enough today.

W: Sergio Romo (1-0)
L: Wei-Chung Wang (0-1)
S: Derek Law (1)

HR: Khris Davis (4), Wily Peralta (2), Carlos Gomez (3), Martin Maldonado (1), Pablo Sandoval (3)

Box score

Well, that'll take the wind out of your sails a little bit. Today the Brewers faced Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, who entered the day with 17 scoreless innings on the spring. They homered off him three times, but it was not enough as San Francisco came from behind for a  win.

Wily Peralta had one of those homers, his second of the spring. He's never hit one in 71 regular season plate appearances. He was also very good on the mound, holding the Giants to a single run on six hits over 6.1 innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out five in the contest.

Four solo home runs were the entirety of the offense today, and three members of the Opening Day roster joined Peralta in going deep: Khris Davis, Carlos Gomez and Martin Maldonado hit long balls today. The Brewers have now hit 28 homers on the spring, three more than they hit in a WBC-extended Cactus League season last year.

A 4-2 lead unraveled in the top of the ninth when the first four batters to face Wei-Chung Wang all got base hits, putting the winning run on third with none out. Wang induced a pop up to get the first out, but a sac fly drove home the eventual winning run.

The loss drops the Brewers to 12-15 on the spring and removes any hope of a winning season in the Cactus League. They'll head to Goodyear to face the Indians tomorrow, where Yovani Gallardo is scheduled to pitch against Justin Masterson.
