Ramirez hurt but banged-up Brewers beat Angels 4-3

Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) -- The injuries are coming in bunches for the
Milwaukee Brewers.

Aramis Ramirez doubled for his first hit of the spring Saturday
but left Milwaukee's 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels
with a strained left knee.

Ramirez snapped an 0-for-10 start with a bloop double down the
left-field line in the third inning. After time was called, he
stepped off the bag and was met by the team trainer before
walking slowly back to the dugout. He will be re-evaluated on

"When he slid into the bag, that impact jammed it," Brewers
manager Ron Roenicke said. "We checked it out and couldn't see
any damage there. He's day to day, but usually that's more than
one day."

It was the third significant piece of injury news for Milwaukee
on Saturday. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo was scratched from his
scheduled start Sunday against the Cubs with tightness in his
groin, and left fielder Ryan Braun was out of the lineup with a
bruised left knee.

The Brewers already lost first baseman Mat Gamel for the season
after he tore a knee ligament in the team's first full workout,
and two-time All-Star Corey Hart will be out until at least May
following right knee surgery in January.

Gallardo will throw a bullpen session Sunday instead of making
his start. If all goes well, he could start for Milwaukee on
Tuesday. At that point, he and the Brewers will decide whether
he'll be cleared to pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball

Braun was set to leave Brewers camp Sunday morning to join Team
USA for the WBC.

"I'm not worried about Ryan," Roenicke said. "He went through
all of his workout (Saturday morning), hit up here and just
didn't feel right."

Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson went 1 2-3 innings in his spring
debut, allowing two runs and four hits while striking out two.

"We've played so many games already, so I've been itching to get
in there," said Wilson, who had bone spurs removed from his left
elbow in October. "In the first inning I overcooked a couple of
balls just from being anxious."

Wilson, who had an ice pack on his sore left knee, said his arm
felt as loose as ever.

"If you're driving around with a flat tire on your car and you
fix the tire, the car's going to feel better just from doing
that," he said.

Hiram Burgos held Los Angeles to one run and two hits over four
innings in his final appearance before leaving to join Puerto
Rico for the WBC. Burgos, the Brewers' minor league pitcher of
the year last season, struck out two and walked one.

"Now I can meet with the Puerto Rico team over there with that
confidence," said Burgos, who said he's been told he'll pitch in
the team's Pool C opener against Spain. "I know a lot of players
from that country want to be there. It's a blessing to be

Vernon Wells hit his first home run of the spring for the Angels
leading off the second inning.

Rickie Weeks homered and Taylor Green added a two-run double for
the Brewers.

NOTES: Green will play for Milwaukee on Sunday before joining
Team Canada for the WBC. ... Before the game, the Angels renewed
the contract of AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout for $510,000,
which is $20,000 above the major league minimum. Trout did not
make the road trip Saturday. ... RHP Marco Estrada will start in
Gallardo's place Sunday against the Cubs.
