Kyle Lohse had a solid debut three days after signing a $33 million, three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, pitching into the fourth inning of a 6-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday. Lohse gave up two first-inning hits, including a run-scoring double by Carlos Gonzalez, but settled down after that. He also gave up doubles to Todd Helton to lead off the second and Dexter Fowler to lead off the third. He did not walk a batter and struck out two. Overall he gave up a run and four hits in 3 2-3 innings. Infielder Yuniesky Betancourt made a triumphant return to the Brewers after playing with Kansas City in 2012 and being in the Philadelphia Phillies' camp earlier this spring. He had three hits, including a home run and a double.
