Brewers 7, Giants 3
San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain looked sharp in his Cactus League debut, but it was the Milwaukee Brewers who came away with a win 7-3 tonight at Scottsdale Stadium. [box score] [video highlights]
Cain pitched two solid innings, allowing just two hits and a walk. He tossed 31 total pitches.
In just their fourth exhibition contest, San Francisco (1-2-1) still looked somewhat sloppy on defense, committing a passed ball (Chris Stewart) and two errors—one by third baseman Pablo Sandoval and the other by Justin Christian in left field.
Ryan Braun did not play for Milwaukee (1-0-1).
|Top hitter: Huff (1-for-2, RBI, HR)
Top pitcher: Yourkin (3 IP, 2 H)
Key moment: Wheeler’s game-tying 2-run blast in the 6th inning, ending a streak of 14 straight scoreless innings against Giants pitching.
NOTES: Gregor Blanco, in the Giants’ camp as a non-roster invitee, went 1-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases. He almost had an inside-the-park homer last Thursday. This just in: Dude’s fast. … Brett Pill went 1-for-3 with a double and is batting .444 this spring … With Huff at first, Brandon Belt played left field tonight. Belt could very well make the team as the Giants’ fourth outfielder. He looked smooth out there tonight … Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez may be game-ready before the weekend, according to manager Bruce Bochy.
