"They put the ball on the ground and what happened, happened," Garza said. "That’s the way it broke down. Thank god, it’s spring training."
NOTES: Garza signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Brewers after going a combined 10-6 with a 3.82 ERA over 24 games with the Chicago Cubs and Texas in 2013. He’s not spotting balls as he usually does," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "He had no rhythm. And, of course, we didn’t help him out." Garza said he had to grind it out. "I could only say ‘keep pitching,’" Garza said. "It’s more about me showing the guys what I can do." Roenicke would like to see that soon. "I would like the next one to be better," said Roenicke. . . . The Brewers’ defense left a lot to be desired in an eight-run Angels’ second and Garza deserved a much better fate. First, Rickie Weeks was unable to come up with Hank Conger’s hard double play ball at second for an error. Matt Long followed with a bouncer up the middle that went under shortstop Jean Segura’s glove for a hit. Kole Calhoun then scored from first on Mike Trout’s ground single to left as third base coach Keith Johnson aggressively waved Calhoun around third as the throw came into second and Weeks’ throw home was late. Later, Segura was unable to handle a relay throw that allowed Albert Pujols to slide in safely at third.
