PHOENIX -- The Brewers took the field at Maryvale Baseball Park for a three-inning intrasquad game on Tuesday. The purpose, manager Ron Roenicke said, was to get some young pitchers in a more relaxed atmosphere, for hitters to get game-like situations and to work on bunt defenses.

The "visiting" team won, 4-1, led by a first-inning, two-run home run from Carlos Gomez. Gomez connected off right-hander Brooks Hall. Lefty Wei-Chung Wang struck out two and walked two in his inning of work.

Non-roster invitee Mitch Haniger homered off right-hander David Goforth in the top of the third. Right-hander Kevin Shackelford worked a scoreless inning.

"The pitchers need to throw more strikes, get ahead," Roenicke said. "But this is why we do it. The offense was really good. You don't expect the offense so early [in Spring Training]."
