PHOENIX – Tyson Ross pitched hitless ball for the second straight start, helping the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Friday.
Competing for the No. 3 spot in the San Diego rotation, Ross struck out three in three innings and walked two. He has thrown five hitless innings in two starts.
Milwaukee didn't get a hit until Elian Herrera tripled leading off the sixth on a drive that center fielder Rico Noel lost in the sun. Scooter Gennett followed two batters later with a two-run homer, just his second hit in 15 spring training at-bats.
Noel hit an inside-the-park home run in the fourth.
Ryan Braun went 0 for 2 with a walk after getting hits in seven of his first eight spring training at-bats.
Milwaukee starter Matt Garza gave up three runs — two earned — and six hits in three innings, giving up a leadoff homer to Alex Dickerson in San Diego. He had allowed four runs, four hits and two walks in one inning and Colorado last Sunday in his first start.
