This Weekend's Results

Dodgers 10, Brewers 1

The Dodgers hit three home runs, held the Brewers hitless through six innings, and rolled to an easy 10-1 victory. The Dodgers scored five runs in the second thanks to two Brewers errors, one when Carlos Gomez dropped a fly ball and another when Martin Maldonado threw a ball into the stands. Matt Garza allowed five runs in five innings, but only one run was earned. He also allowed a home run and a walk, and had one strikeout. In the bullpen, Rob Wooten pitched 1 2/3 innings allowing only a walk, and Tyler Thornburg and Wei-Chung Wang also posted scoreless innings.

Rangers 5, Brewers 4

Hector Gomez added to his case for a bench job with a nice game on Saturday. He had an RBI single in the fifth inning, and then hit a two-run home run in the seventh (the Brewers first home run of the spring). Wily Peralta was solid in his spring debut, allowing just one run on three hits with three strikeouts in two innings of work. However, everything unraveled for the Brewers in the eighth inning as Taylor Williams allowed four runs on three hits and two walks in 2/3 of an inning.

Dodgers 4, Brewers 3

Mike Fiers made his first official start on Sunday, and had a nice day, allowing only one unearned run over 2 2/3 innings for the Brewers. Carlos Gomez had an RBI single in the first inning, and the Dodgers tied it in the third off of Gerardo Parra's error. Matt Clark tied the game for the Brewers in the ninth inning with a solo home run, but Corey Seager won it for the Dodgers with a walk-off double.
