Kirk Nieuwenhuis put Milwaukee up Early in Game 12 of ST as he jump-started the first with a two-out two-run homer, as the Brewers beat the Indians 5-4 in yesterday’s spring training game.

Box Score

The Indians responded immediately though with back-to-back home runs from Mike Napoli and Yan Gomes, putting Cleveland up 4-2 early. That would be all the score however as the bullpen came through for the Brewers. Starting pitching Chase Anderson tried to put his poor outing last week past him while he only suffered the damage of two home runs he posted a 14.85 ERA with five hits, four runs, four errors, two home runs and only run strikeout in three innings of work. Despite the rough start, Anderson finished the outing strong.

Skipper Craig Counsell commented on the outing saying “It’s a spring training outing you feel like you got something from,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “Anderson made an adjustment during the outing and got after it for the next seven outs. He did a nice job.”

Anderson also had a word saying “It was good to finish on a positive note,” Anderson said. “I need to understand the guy I am. I’m not going to overpower people. My step forward as a pitcher is to pitch deeper into ballgames. I feel I can do that.”

The bullpen, however, posted four strikeouts and eight scoreless innings between Davies, Blazek, Boyer, and Lopez.  Davies was the highlight of the bullpen striking out two in three scoreless innings.
