BREWERS 8, DIAMONDBACKS 7
at Phoenix, Ariz.
Wednesday, April 1
D-backs at the plate: Felipe Lopez had two hits and three RBIs, and Tony Clark finished with three hits and scored two runs for Arizona, which built leads of 3-0 and 6-2 before Milwaukee staged a comeback. Lopez's two-run home run in the sixth inning was his first of the spring. Chad Tracy added a solo home run, his second.
Brewers at the plate:
Minor Leaguer Steffan Wilson hit a go-ahead, two-run double to cap a four-run Milwaukee seventh inning that gave the Brewers their first lead of the afternoon. Right fielder Corey Hart stayed hot with two hits, including a two-run homer, his seventh in the Cactus League, and the Brewers won for the 11th time in their last 14 games. Hart was robbed of a second two-run homer in the sixth inning, when Arizona's Justin Upton made a leaping catch in right field.
D-backs on the mound:
Starter Dan Haren was very good, holding the Brewers to two runs on three hits over five innings with five strikeouts and no walks. The only blemish on his line was Hart's two-run homer in the fourth inning. Left-hander Doug Slaten was knocked around in the seventh for four runs and four hits, and he took the loss.
Brewers on the mound:
Dave Bush worked around baserunners throughout his first poor start of the spring, allowing six earned runs on 13 hits in six innings. He entered the game with a 3-0 record and a 2.70 ERA in his previous seven spring appearances. Brewers relievers stayed sharp. Todd Coffey worked a scoreless seventh inning and was credited with the win, and Jorge Julio preserved a one-run lead with a perfect eighth inning.
Cactus League records:
Diamondbacks 11-20; Brewers 19-10-3
For the Brewers, Bill Hall should be back in the lineup against the White Sox on Thursday at 2:05 p.m. CT, when Milwaukee plays its final Arizona Spring Training game against the Chicago White Sox. Hall had a tooth extracted on Tuesday and was supposed to return on Wednesday, but the team's athletic training staff opted to give him one more day. Jeff Suppan, Milwaukee's Opening Day starter, is scheduled to start against White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd.
