Brewers 7, Rangers 4

Milwaukee pulled a spring sweep of the Rangers scoring six times off Kevin Millwood in six innings en route to a 7-4 win. The Brewers also won Thursday afternoon.

Millwood didn't pitch as poorly as the score indicates. Five of the runs against him were unearned as errors by Elvis Andrus in the first and Michael Young in the fourth aided the Brewers' cause. Millwood went to the bullpen afterward and threw between 20 and 25 pitches to push his total for the day to 115.

"I'm ready to go," said Millwood, who will start Opening Day. "I feel like I threw the ball well. I walked too many guys [three], but other than that my fastball location was better than last time and I was able to put my breaking ball where I wanted to when I wanted to."

Chris Davis hit his fourth homer of the spring, and Michael Young hit his second to lead the Rangers' offense.

unearned or not, 6 runs against this almost completely minor league squad the Brewers brought down is piss poor, even by Fatwood standards.

if this bozo is permitted to pitch more than 179 2/3 innings this year, which invokes his 12 million bean option, it would be the upset of all time! I look forward to seeing the future and younger pitchers as the season wears on.

Who decided to black out the game last night in Wichita Falls?
