Scooter Gennett homers off Jorge De La Rosa; Brewers down Rockies 5-4

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — Scooter Gennett hit his fourth home run in eight games and singled against Jorge De La Rosa, help the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-4 victory over a Colorado Rockies split-squad on Wednesday, March 30th.

De La Rosa allowed four runs and four hits in three innings in his final tuneup before facing Arizona on opening day on Monday. He walked four, one with the bases loaded.

Not even facing a lefty could slow Gennett in his return from a shoulder injury. The second baseman pulled a two-run homer to right in the second and is hitting .462.

Colorado's Nolan Arenado also continued his impressive spring. The third baseman crushed a two-run shot to left off Blaine Boyer for his sixth homer. He is hitting .566.

Ariel Pena, trying to earn the final spot in Milwaukee's bullpen, started and allowed one run and three hits with two strikeouts in three innings.
