San Francisco pitcher Matt Cain looked sharp in his Cactus League debut, but it was the Milwaukee Brewers who came away with a win 7-3 tonight at Scottsdale Stadium. [box score]

Cain pitched two solid innings, allowing just two hits and a walk. He tossed 32 pitches.

Pinch hitter Zelous Wheeler blasted a three-run homer off Jeremy Affeldt and former Giant Travis Ishikawa added a solo shot in the 9th.

Aubrey Huff hit his first spring home run, a solo job off Wily Peralta, in the 4th inning.

In just their fourth exhibition contest, San Francisco (1-2-1) still looked somewhat sloppy on defense, committing a passed ball (Chris Stewart) and two errors—one by third baseman Pablo Sandoval and the other by Justin Christian in left field.

Ryan Braun did not play for Milwaukee (1-0-1).

Top hitter: Huff (1-for-2, RBI, HR)
Top pitcher: Yourkin (3 IP, 2 H)
Key moment: Wheeler’s game-tying 3-run blast in the 6th inning.

The Giants will take on the Dodgers tomorrow afternoon (12:05 p.m. PT) at Camelback Ranch. Barry Zito will face Ted Lilly. The game will be broadcast on the MLB Network.

NOTES: Gregor Blanco, in the Giants’ camp as a non-roster invitee, went 1-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases … Brett Pill went 1-for-3 with a double and is batting .444 this spring.
