In a game that saw many of their offensive stars taking the day off - Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Casey McGehee to name a few - the Milwaukee Brewers were still able to put up their fair share of runs. Fifteen of them, in fact. Milwaukee's run output matched the number of the innings on three different occasions scoring three in the third, four in the fourth, and seven in the seventh. The Cincinnati Reds have done a very good job of keeping opponents from scoring on them this March, but the Brewers broke the floodgates right open knocking off the Reds 15-2.
The outcome may mean nothing in terms of the Brewers getting back to the playoffs, and the exhibition nature of the game was evident by the mixed broadcast (Brian Anderson worked a few innings with the Reds color man while Rock did some innings with Tebow loving Thom Brennaman). But this kind of performance from Milwaukee could go a long way in terms of who may or may not make this team, as well as cement some of the questions marks into their starting roles. Candidate for worst defensive shortstop in the league Yuniesky Betancourt at least proved he's got some worth at the plate, collecting two hits, two runs, and two RBI. Carlos Gomez is looking to get most of the starts in center, and he had a similar line although he did hit one ball over the fence for a rare home run.
As for the guys who are playing for spots on the 25-man roster, Brandon Boggs put together another strong performance towards his bid. Boggs homered in the second inning and then tripled later on, although his three bagger was more the result of shotty outfield play by whoever the hell Cincinnati had in the outfield at the time. But Boggs hustled it out, and notched a triple when most would have settled for a double. I like the way that Boggs has been playing this Spring, and I'm slowly starting to root for this guy. Erick Almonte also had a big day for the Brewers, collecting four hits including a home run of his own.
With the win, the Brewers are now 6-4 during Spring Training. The Brewers had a mixed weekend, beating Ron Roenicke's former team in the Angels on Saturday, and then dropping split squad games to Texas and Oakland on Sunday. Milwaukee will next face the Dodgers on Tuesday at 2:05pm Milwaukee time.
