Brewers leave Arizona with 8-2 loss to Reds

Sarah Glenn

See ya later, Cactus League

The bad news is that the Brewers lost. The good news (and the more important news, considering the results of this game don't matter) is that Kyle Lohse was all-in-all pretty good.

Yesterday, Yovani Gallardo pitched just two innings and gave up four runs in his final spring training tune-up before the regular season. Today, Lohse went five innings, allowing two earned runs. He also struck out four batters while walking none. I would call that a rousing success. Particularly after Lohse struggled most of the spring prior to today's action and finished the pre-season with a 5.45 ERA.

The bullpen today was comprised of players who won't matter come opening day. Casey Medlen gave up four runs. Brent Leach gave up one unearned run. Kyle Heckathorn gave up one earned run. Nice job guys! Better luck next spring.

The offense had an interesting day. They only picked up six hits, but drew a whopping 10 walks. Logan Schafer was 1-3 with a double, and also took two of the 10 bases on balls. Lyle Overbay and Scooter Gennett were the only other two players to reach base multiple times.

Hunter Morris hit his first home run of the spring, way too late for it to matter both in the game and in spring training. Lyle Overbay practically qualifies for AARP, Hunter, you couldn't beat him out?

Alas, all mediocre things must come to an end and the Brewers are finished up with the Cactus League for another year. But wait, there's still two more exhibition games as the Royals visit Miller Park! Get hyped, I guess. Or just wait for Opening Day like I am.

Oh yeah, the Brewers finished 12-17 in the Cactus league, if that matters to you. It shouldn't, but it does to some people.
