GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Justin Masterson continued his dominating spring and the offense broke out of its lull as the Indians broke a three-game losing streak with a 10-3 win over Milwaukee.
Masterson finished the spring by limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits over 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander also struck out five and walked two. In 24 2/3 innings and six starts, Masterson allowed only three earned runs and had an ERA of 1.09 while striking out 25 and walking six. His next start will be in Monday’s opener at Oakland.
"I feel like I’m as ready as we can. You never know until you actually get there," Masterson said. "I got some good work in today. I worked on the sinker and powering it through."
The Indians’ offense, which didn’t score a run in Tuesday’s loss to Texas, had 17 hits and were 9 of 18 with runners in scoring position. Four players had two hits, including Michael Brantley, who was 2 for 2 with a triple. Brantley is batting .522 on the spring and has 12 RBI.
