Game Wrap: Brewers 6, Rockies 2

Scott Boehm

Everyone and their mother played in this final game of spring training, as the opening day lineup exited after an at bat or two. Dexter Fowler continued torching the baseball, collecting a single and a double, while Carlos Gonzalez and Todd Helton each picked up a double. The team as a whole went 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position, resulting in a scant 2 run effort.

Meanwhile, Nick Schmidt proved very hittable, surrendering 5 runs on 7 hits in his 3 innings of work. Yunieski Betancourt was a terror at the plate, knocking a homer, a ground-rule double, and a single in his 4 plate appearances. It felt very weird to type that sentence. Aramis Ramirez and Jean Segura also had two hits against Schmidt and a hodgepodge of Rockies relievers (Outman, Belisle, Betancourt, Brothers, and Escalona all pitched scoreless frames; Chris Volstad gave up a run on 2 hits in his one inning). The end result: 6 Brewers crossed the plate.

The Rockies' final Cactus League record stands at a robust 16 and 14. They have tomorrow off, then will head up to Salt Lake City for an exhibition game against the Seattle Mariners. After that: real baseball baby.
