the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Cleveland Indians 10-3 on Wednesday.

Gallardo gave up four earned runs on six hits, including a home run, with four walks before leaving after two innings.

Gallardo is set to start opening day for the Brewers on Monday against the Atlanta Braves at Miller Park.

The Brewers will close out Cactus League play this afternoon against the Cincinnati Reds.  Then, they’ll return to Milwaukee to play exhibitions on Friday and Saturday against the Kansas City Royals.

Jean Segura

Brewers shortstop Jean Segura’s sore shoulder isn’t healing as fast as they’d like and there’s a chance he won’t be ready for opening day on Monday.  Segura could also open the season on the disabled list.
