Marco Estrada pitches Brewers past Royals 7-2
MILWAUKEE 7, KANSAS CITY 2

By RICH ROVITO
Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marco Estrada pitched five scoreless innings
and Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run double, leading the Milwaukee
Brewers past the Kansas City Royals 7-2 on Saturday

The Royals managed just two hits off Estrada, who retired his
last 10 batters. Estrada finished the spring by pitching 17
consecutive shutout innings.

"He's been outstanding," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.
"Great command of his fastball. Changeup has been really good.
His curveball has been good. His location has been outstanding."

Lucroy, who struggled at the plate this spring, connected off
Kansas City starter Yordano Ventura with two outs in the third
inning.

"Ventura has a great arm," Roenicke said. "That stuff, there's
not much better than that. To get some runs off of him, I
thought that was really good."

Aramis Ramirez went 1 for 2 with an RBI. Logan Schafer had three
hits and two RBIs. Minor leaguer Michael Ratterree hit a solo
home run in the seventh.

Kansas City scored two ninth-inning runs off reliever Francisco
Rodriguez.

The Brewers finished the spring at 13-18, while the Royals went
12-16-2.

STARTING TIME:

Brewers: Estrada struck out four and didn't walk a batter. He
threw 61 pitches, 38 for strikes.

"It's a good feeling, a good way to go into the season," Estrada
said. "Now I just have to transfer that into the season and do
it where it matters."

Royals: Ventura allowed four hits and three runs over three
innings. He struck out five, walked two and threw a pair of wild
pitches.

"He struggled with his command," Royals manager Ned Yost said.
"He's always going to have his good stuff but his battle days
will be with his command and it was like that today."

HOME OPENER:

Brewers: RHP Yovani Gallardo will be making his fifth career
opening day start on Monday, trailing only Ben Sheets (six) in
franchise history. He is 0-2 with a 5.82 ERA in his previous
openers.

Royals: James Shields will start the team's season opener on
Monday in Detroit, his second consecutive opening day
assignment.

MOVING DAY:

Royals: Infielder Jason Donald was assigned to Triple-A Omaha.
Catcher Ramon Hernandez was released by the team upon request of
his agent after the Royals said the 37-year-old would not make
the team.

TRAINERS' ROOM:

Brewers: Shortstop Jean Segura, who has been battling shoulder
soreness, worked out before Saturday's game, just as he did
prior to Friday night's game, leaving manager Ron Roenicke
believing that Segura will be ready for the season opener.

"It went well. He made probably 10 to 15 throws and he felt good
about it," Roenicke said.

Segura, who hasn't played since March 18, is expected to take
part in a simulated game at Miller Park on Sunday before being
evaluated by the team's medical staff.

Royals: Louis Coleman (bruised finger) and Luke Hochevar (right
elbow) were placed on the 15-day disabled list. Infielder Omar
Infante took part in a minor league game Saturday and will join
the Royals for their workout Sunday in Detroit.

"He played well and felt good," Yost said. Infante received a
cortisone shot for a bone spur in his right elbow on March 18
and did not travel with the team to Milwaukee.

FINAL TUNEUP:

Brewers: Wily Peralta will pitch a simulated game on Sunday.
He's expected to throw about 75 pitches.

Royals: Bruce Chen will make a minor league start on Sunday in
Surprise, Ariz. The veteran hurler, who re-signed with Kansas
City over the winter, is expected to be limited to 60 pitches.

GROUND RULE:

Brewers third baseman Mark Reynolds' towering fly ball in the
fifth inning hit a wire on the roof at Miller Park. The ball
fell into left field for a double.
