Brewers drop both games
Well, the hot start came to an end today as the Brewers dropped both games of a split squad against the Mariners (8-4) and Padres (18-5). Victor Santos was shelled, as was Sam Narron, and no pitcher really turned in a great performance. However, all was not lost, as Prince Fielder continued his torrid spring with a mammoth HR against the Mariners, as did Carlos Lee with his 4th of the spring against the Padres. Geoff Jenkins also hit two homers in the San Diego game. JJ Hardy went two for three with a double and an RBI single against the Mariners. Starter Ben Hendrickson pitched two scoreless racks. The Brewers continue Cactus League action tomorrow against the Rockies, with Chris Capuano facing off against Joe Kennedy.
