It was a rough outing for Ben Sheets in his final tune-up before Opening Day, but the Brewers had enough offensive power to earn a victory over the Chicago White Sox, 12-10. Sheets gave up nine runs in five innings, giving up four home runs. His ERA for the Spring finishes at 9.56. No need to worry here, he's had bad springs before, and should be the best pitcher who succumbs to an odd illness for another season.
Turnbow, Mota, and Torress all pitched scoreless innings, as did former Brewer Scott Linebrink. Linebrink, who was brought in to help the Crew contend for the playoffs, has had a pretty decent spring with the White Sox.
At the plate for the Brewers, it was a solid afternoon with 12 runs off 15 hits. Kendall and Gross each had a pair of hits, while Hart and Braun each knocked one over the fence.
The Brewers spring is nearly complete. They play the Cubs tomorrow for their last game in Arizona. Then, they'll travel back to Miller Park to take on the Royals Friday night and Saturday afternoon in exhibition games (all tickets are 10 bucks). After that, it's an off day, then Opening Day.
