The Milwaukee Brewers finally got a strong outing from starting pitcher Matt Garza. He allowed a run on four hits in six innings as the Brewers knocked off the Cincinnati Reds 9-1.
Jim Henderson, Tyler Thornburg, Zach Duke and Rob Wooten combined to pitch the final three innings of scoreless relief against the Reds to complete the solid pitching effort.
Jonathan Lucroy homered and drove in three runs and Logan Schaefer and Lyke Overbay each had a pair of doubles.
The Brewers have the day off today.
Even though 1st baseman Juan Francisco had a good spring offensively, he’s a liability on defense. Even though no official word was issued by the Brewers on Francisco’s status, his locker was cleaned out yesterday, apparently leaving the first base job to Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds.
