The Brewers played their first game of the year yesterday beating UWM 11-2, and though it was against UWM, we still got to see the first performances from some exciting new players. Looking at numbers at this early point in spring training doesn’t give a good representation of in-season production, but, what’s more, exciting than finally getting Brewers baseball back? With that in mind, here is a look at some of the performances from Brewers game 1:
Orlando Arcia: Brewers top prospect Orlando Arcia hit a two-run home run in the third inning, his lone hit of the game. 1-3, HR, R, 2 RBI
Domingo Santana: The Brewers right fielder managed a double and two walks in his first spring action. 1-1, 2B, 2 BB, 2 R
Will Middlebrooks: The third base hopeful (spending the day as the DH) had the Brewers single 2-hit day, hitting a two-run home run in the third. 2-3, HR, R, 3 RBI
Taylor Jungmann: Jungmann started up his sophomore campaign right by pitching an inning of shutout ball and striking out a pair. 1 IP, H, 2 K
Hiram Burgos: The longtime Brewers farmhand had a rough first outing, giving up the only Panthers runs of the game. 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER

Austin Ross: A name I was unfamiliar with until yesterday, Austin Ross was selected by the Brewers in the 8th round of the 2010 draft and has spent his career in the minors. He split last season between AA and AAA, seeing a large drop-off in performance with the jump to AAA. At 27 years old, it seems unlikely he will see the big league team, but he still had a nice game yesterday pitching an inning and striking out the side without giving up a hit. 1 IP, 3 K
These aren’t numbers to put a lot of thought into, but it’s exciting to see finally some Brewers action. Is there anybody else you want me to bring up? Let me know in the comments!
