MARYVALE, AZ (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Matt Garza gave up four first-inning runs in his Milwaukee debut, but the Brewers came back later to beat Colorado 6-to-5 yesterday in an exhibition game at Scottsdale Arizona.
Garza, who signed a four-year, 50-million-dollar free agent contract this winter, surrendered four hits and a pair of walks in one inning of work. Michael McKenry had the big hit for the Rockies with a two-run double.
Hector Gomez gave Milwaukee the victory with a homer in the eighth inning off Rockies' reliever Scott Oberg.
The Brewers are now 3-and-2 in Cactus League play, and will face the Chicago Cubs this afternoon.
