Spring Training Game Recap: 3/6/16

INDIANS 5, BREWERS 6

Yadiel Rivera hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Sunday afternoon to improve the Brewers Cactus League record to 4-0-1 through their first five games. Matt Garza started and went 1.2 innings, allowing a home run and two walks. Aaron Hill stole home on a double steal in the third inning to tie the game at 1-1, and Chris Carter’s second homer of the spring put Milwaukee up 2-1 in the fourth. The Brewers added a run in the fifth, but Cleveland answered with four runs in the sixth off of reliever Javier Guerra to take the lead. Milwaukee rallied to tie the game in the seventh with a pair of runs, leading up to Rivera’s second ninth inning home run in as many days, this time a walk-off blast, giving the Brewers a 6-5 victory. Austin Ross worked a scoreless ninth, striking out two to earn the win.

Yadiel Rivera doubled and homered for the Brewers in their 6-5 win on Sunday.

  1. Is this a product of Rivera playing all winter that he’s just ahead of everyone else or should I legit get excited about him as a prospect?
