Brewers Split A Pair, Lose Hart For Awhile

by

 

Phoenix, Az (WSAU)The Milwaukee Brewers split their first two exhibition games yesterday in Arizona. One Brewer team lost to San Francisco 10-to-9, while another Milwaukee squad topped the Chicago Cubs 5-to-3. Shaun Marcum gave up two runs on four hits in two innings against the Giants, while throwing only fastballs and change-ups. Marcum struck out three in his first appearance in a Milwaukee uniform since being traded from Toronto in the off-season. Reliever Mike McClendon gave up four runs in the sixth, when the Giants scored six times. Former Brewers’ right-hander Jeff Suppan tossed three scoreless innings against his old team without giving up a hit. Minor league outfielder Brendan Katin hit a two-run homer for Milwaukee. In the Cubs’ victory, Ryan Braun doubled and scored. And Caleb Gindl hit an R-B-I triple for the Brew Crew. Today, the Brewers will play the Chicago White Sox at Tucson. Right-hander Zack Greinke will make his first exhibition start against Sox southpaw Mark Buehrle.

 

 

Brewers’ right-fielder Corey Hart will be out for two weeks with a strained left oblique muscle. At first, Hart thought he would only miss a couple days after getting hurt while making a throw from the outfield during a drill last Saturday. Assistant general manager Gord Ash said there’s nothing to gain by rushing Hart back, and the team must be extremely careful in handling that type of injury.
