Padres silence Brewers' bats in 6-2 win
MAR 07, 2014 7:25p ET
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.
"I was more in control. Not less energy but more controlled energy, Garza said. "The first time out is a lot more anxiety, a lot of excitement. I felt great today. Everything was in line and everything was under control, and I was able to throw strikes."
