Brewers beat Padres 8-5 as pitching continues to impress

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 8-5 in an eight inning affair to boost their Cactus League record to 3-1.

Four Milwaukee pitchers opened the game with five no-hit innings. Drew Rasmussen opened with two innings of work – the first Brewers pitcher to toss more than an inning – walking two and striking three.

Brent Suter, Justin Topa and Angel Perdomo each followed with a no-hit inning, each striking out two.

Utility man Pablo Reyes, fighting for a roster spot, provided the big blow for Milwaukee with a three-run home run in the fourth inning.

Garrett Mitchell, Milwaukee’s first-round pick last year, drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth with an RBI single.

The Brewers host Cleveland on Thursday at 2 p.m. The contest will air on FOX Sports Wisconsin.
