Garza roughed up again in 6-2 loss to Padres

It's ok, he's just...umm...working on stuff.

Gameday Box Score

It's a good thing these games don't matter, because this one was pretty discouraging.

Matt Garza was roughed up for the second consecutive start, this time allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits over three innings. Garza has now allowed 12 baserunners in just four innings of work over his two starts this spring, and reportedly has yet to throw a breaking ball.

Meanwhile, the Brewers offense didn't offer much help. They didn't get their first hit until Padres outfielder Rico Noel lost a fly ball in the sun in the sixth inning and gave Elian Herrera a triple. Scooter Gennett followed that with a home run to get the Crew on the board but, unfortunately, Herrera returned the favor by losing a fly ball in the sun in the sixth and two more San Diego runs scored.

Today was a rare quiet day offensively for Ryan Braun, who went 0-for-2 with a walk. Scooter Gennett's homer was only his second hit of the spring.

The Brewers did get solid pitching performances today from a pair of starting pitchers likely ticketed for AAA Nashville: Johnny Hellweg worked around a hit and a walk in two scoreless innings, and Mike Fiers cruised through a 1-2-3 eighth.

The Brewers are now 5-5 on the spring, and they wrap up the longest homestand of the exhibition season when they host the Royals tomorrow. MLB.com says Marco Estrada will face John Lamb, but they were wrong about which Ross was pitching for the Padres today.
