Just nine days before the season opener against Colorado at Miller Park and the Milwaukee Brewers are still looking to finalize the back end of their starting rotation.
Left-hander Tommy Milone gave up seven runs and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings as the Brewers fell to the Cincinnati Reds 12-11. Milone has had a good spring and his hoping one bad outing won’t be a deciding factor in whether or not he makes the team or the rotation.
Manny Pina homered in his fourth straight game. Eric Sogard tripled in a pair of runs and Ivan De Jesus Jr. raised his average to .405 with a 3 for 4 effort.
The Brewers return to Cactus League action this afternoon against the Kansas City Royals. They’ll send Wily Peralta (0-0, 1.29) to the mound against Ian Kennedy.
