Brewers Robbed of a Comeback by Rain

Giants beat Brewers 4-2 as game called early due to weather. Tyrone Taylor goes “oppo”

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers-Media Day Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The opportunity to play beneath the lights during Spring Training is a rare thing for the Brewers, but that is what happened when the Brew Crew took on Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants. Zach Davies got the start for Milwaukee. Davies cruised through the first 3 innings before giving up a solo shot to Brandon Belt to lead off the bottom of the fourth inning. The Giants kept the pressure on in the fourth as Davies walked Brandon Crawford and gave up a single to Pablo Sandoval. Alen Hanson and Bumgarner knocked Crawford and then Sandoval in with singles of their own. Hanson scored the fourth run of the inning on a fielder’s choice. Nate Griep replaced Davies and finished the inning.

The Brewers did have something cooking in the top of the fourth with three straight singles from Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich, and Yasmani Grandal. Milwaukee was unable to capitalize as Travis Shaw popped out and Mike Moustakas and Eric Thames struck out. The top of the fifth proved to be more successful for the Brewers. Orlando Arcia opened the inning with a single and scored when Tyrone Taylor hit an opposite field home run making the score 4-2.

The Brewers didn’t get a chance to make a comeback. The game was called going into the bottom of the fifth due to copious amounts of rainfall.

The Brewers play next on Wednesday, March 13 against the Cleveland Indians at 4:05 CST. The Brewers will visit Goodyear Park and will send Chase Anderson out to the mound against Trevor Bauer.
