Box Score

After a rough start to the spring yesterday, the Brewers got a much better looking game today.

Ben Gamel led off the game with a single, then Jesus Aguilar singled to put two runners on base. Hernan Perez homered then with two outs to give the Brewers an early 3-0 lead. In the second inning, Troy Stokes singled and Keston Hiura was hit by a pitch to put two runners on base. Ben Gamel then hit into a force out, and Yasmani Grandal walked to load the bases. Jesus Aguilar hit a sacrifice fly increased the score to 4-0, then Mike Moustakas was also hit by a pitch to load the bases again. Perez came up again and this time hit a bases-clearing double, increasing the Brewers lead to 7-0. Orlando Arcia singled as well to up it to 8-0.

Perez also added on his seventh RBI in the fourth inning with a groundout to drive in Jesus Aguilar. Nate Orf finished off the Brewers scoring in the fifth inning when he reached on a throwing error, allowing Hiura to score. That gave the Brewers a 10-0 lead.

Jesus Aguilar, Hernan Perez, and Orlando Arcia each had two hits in the game. Ben Gamel and Mike Moustakas also each had a hit, as well as Troy Stokes Jr., Trent Grisham, and Blake Allemand. Moustakas also got some time at second base, and looked good there, according to his teammates.

On the pitching side, most of the pitchers had good days. Josh Tomlin started for the day and pitched one inning, striking out one player. Junior Guerra came up next, allowed a hit and struck out one. His velocity was also strong, according to the radar gun.

Following up in the third inning was Alex Claudio. He also had a perfect inning, striking out one batter. His changeup was on point, as Sophia Minnaert caught on video.

Also pitching in the game was Taylor Williams, Miguel Sanchez, Luke Barker, Rodrigo Benoit, and Danny Reynolds, who each pitched a scoreless inning. The only pitcher that allowed a run was Clayton Andrews, who allowed one run on two hits, one of those being a home run.

They also can’t even escape the snow in Arizona, as some was present in the background during the game.

Next up for the Brewers is a match against the Angels. First pitch is at 2:10 pm.
