Brewers’ Peralta homers and pitches into 7th
Question of the Day
Pablo Sandoval hit a solo shot in the eighth for the Giants.
San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner extended his Cactus League scoreless streak to 21 1-3 straight innings and retired 13 of the first 14 batters before Davis hit a long home run to left-center in the fifth to tie the game 1-all. Peralta led off the sixth with a 400-foot-plus drive to center field and Gomez followed with his third homer of the spring to left.
“There must have been a home run derby I didn’t know about,” Bumgarner said.
Bumgarner finished with a 1.19 ERA for the spring.
“You don’t ever want to give up runs but in a way it’s kind of a relief to give up some before the start of the season,” he said. “It doesn’t really sound like it makes sense, but it kind of does.”
Giants: Bumgarner struck out six in 5 1-3 innings and the slow curveball he’s debuting this spring had several Brewers out in front early. But he fell behind twice to Davis, giving up a line-drive single and a long home run.
“I’m not too worried about it. I felt pretty good about the way I threw the ball,” he said. “They stretched some (at-bats) out, got into some hitter’s counts and did what they’re supposed to do.”
“I had three pitches going,” Peralta said. “The season is right there now, so you’re not trying to mess around or work on pitches this close to the start. You want to make pitches like it’s a real game. I felt like I was able to pound the strike zone and make pitches I needed to make.”
COME ON ALONG
With an off day on Monday, the Brewers made their final roster selections. Left-handed relief pitcher Zach Duke got the nod over Rob Wooten and Jeff Bianchi won a utility job in the infield over Elian Herrera.
Duke, who had a 4.00 ERA in 10 Cactus League games, struck out 10 and walked three in nine innings. Wooten, who will serve in a late-inning role at Triple-A Nashville, also pitched in 10 games with a 3.86 ERA with 13 strikeouts and one walk in 11 2-3 innings.
