My computer is having issues, so let's do this quick

  • In the Royals game, three Brewers pitchers who will not be on the opening day roster (and probably won't be in the majors until possibly September call-ups) combined to give up 10 runs.  Sam Narron gave up 5 earned, Chase Wright gave up three earned and Donovan Hand gave up two earned.
  • Meanwhile, in that same game the Brewers only gained three hits--one each for Kentrail Davis, Wil Nieves, and Jeremy Reed.  Nieves and Zealous Wheeler also picked up walks.
  • There really wasn't anything redeeming about the Royals game at all.
  • Shaun Marcum was a bit off against the Padres.  In four innings, he allowed five baserunners and two homeruns while giving up three earned runs.  He also struck out four.  Marcum also went 1-2 at the plate. 
  • Sergio Mitre gave up an earned run in 2.2 innings in his Brewer debut.
  • Zach Braddock and Takashi Saito worked the end of the game, only giving up a hit between them.
  • Rickie Weeks hit his first HR of the spring and Ryan Braun went deep twice. 
  • Yuni also had a good game, going 2-3 with an RBI.

It is now mathematically impossible for the Brewers to win the Cactus League Championship as they fell 1.5 games behind the first place Colorado Rockies.

I suppose it's only fitting that Ned Yost's Royals caused math to not be on our side.
