Brewers 7, Rockies 6; Brewers 7, White Sox 2 Post-Game

Milwaukee 7, White SoxBox

This one was tied 1-1 through 7 innings until the Crew scored four runs in the eighth and two more in the ninth (The Sox added their second run in the 9th, as well).  The pitching for the Brewers was excellent, as Dave Bush went 4 innings, with 3 hits,0 walks, and 4 K's.  Todd Coffey and Zach Braddock both pitched two innings, giving up one hit each.  AJ Murray gave up a run and two hits in the ninth inning, but really who cares? 

For the hitters, George Kottaras made a case to backup Triple-G by blasting the only HR of the game in the third inning.  No Brewer had multiple hits, and only Joe Inglett and Steffan Wilson got on base more than once.  Carlos Gomez, Inglett, and Norris Hopper (who I completely forgot the Brewers signed) all stole a base.  Some bad defense by the White Sox helped the Brewers out, as three different Chicago players made an error.

Milwaukee 7, Colorado 6 Box

Not as good of pitching in this one, though Manny Parra shined at the beginning.  He put up a pretty similar line to Dave Bush with 4 innings, 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 ER, and 3 K's.  Scott Schoeneweis sucked, giving up four runs (three on a homerun by Matt Miller) in one inning. 

Hitting wise, Lorenzo Cain hit a homerun to tie the game in the eighth inning.  Alcides Escobar had a good game, going 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI.  He has a .455 BA so far this spring.  Trent Oeltjen was 2-4 with a run scored and a RBI, but he was also picked off and caught stealing during the game.
