The Milwaukee Brewers faced San Francisco Giants Opening Day starter Madison Bumgarner yesterday, and were able to put runs on the board against the tough southpaw. However, with the Brewers leading 4-2 going into the top of the ninth, the Giants scored three runs for a 5-4 come from behind win.
It was a shaky start for Milwaukee who managed two hits through five innings. Khris Davis recorded both those hits with one being for his fourth home run of the spring. The Brewers found their bats in the sixth inning when pitcher Wily Peralta and Carlos Gomez each belted home runs, which chased Bumgarner from the game.
The Brewers tallied four solo home runs total in the loss. Martin Maldonado had the other home run in the eighth inning.
Davis was the only Brewer with more than one hit.
Peralta fared nicely on the mound, going six innings only giving up one run. He picked up the no-decision with six strikeouts and allowed no walks. Wei-Chung Wang gave up the three runs in the loss.
The Brewers are back in action today, when they will travel to play the Cleveland Indians. Yovani Gallardo will make his final start before March 31 Opening Day start. First pitch is scheduled for 3:05PM.
