Greinke gave up one hit and struck out five. He left after issuing his lone walk to Casper Wells leading off the fourth.

Seattle starter Hector Noesi went three innings, allowing one run and three hits.
Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, who entered the game hitting .389, struck out in all three at-bats.
Travis Ishikawa and George Kottaras homered for the Brewers and Aramis Ramirez hit two doubles.
BEST OF MAXIM
SHAKEN NOT STIRRED
Okay, maybe it’s not spot on, but perhaps that’s the humor in the fact that Ichiro’s Seattle Mariners teammates could not identify Brendan Ryan’s killer Robert DeNiro impression but nailed who Ichiro was imitating in an instant. Although a Sean Connery line from an Indiana Jones movie? Talk about an obscure choice when there are [...]
For these prospects, it will be another year till they get their shot
On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners made the first of many moves to trim their roster to the mandatory 25 men for their opening day trip to Japan. The number of players left in camp now is 47, after 15 were sent to the minor league part of the Peoria Sports Complex.
Among the players cut were top draft pick Danny...
Francisco Rodriguez and John Axford are a tough combination to beat, and the Milwaukee Brewers' starters love it.
The Brewers never lost a regular-season game that they led after seven innings upon acquiring Rodriguez, who tied for the National League lead with 17 holds from July 16 through the end of the regular season. Axford set a franchise record with 46 saves in 48 chances...
PHOENIX Forget the personalities Tony Plush, Tony Gumbel, Tony Hush ... forget all of them there's something very important people need to know about Nyjer Morgan:
He's a pretty darn good baseball player.
Morgan, the Milwaukee Brewers' always-entertaining outfielder, drew a cult following last season when he and his alter-ego, the gentlemanly Tony Plush, helped lead...
PHOENIX Twice in a span of 25 months, Dale Sveum was interviewed and passed over as Doug Melvin and the Milwaukee Brewers searched for a new field manager.
Under Ken Macha, who took over in 2009, the Brewers stumbled. Granted, a lack of quality pitching was as much to blame as anything, but the disconnect between the players and manager was evident during Macha's two seasons...
PHOENIX Usually during split-squad games, Ron Roenicke stays back at Maryvale Baseball Park.
Tuesday, however, the Milwaukee Brewers' manager made the 25-minute trek across Phoenix to get a good look at players fighting for a roster spot as the Brewers took on Oakland at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
Roenicke wanted to focus his attention on a few of the team's young pitchers...
MESA, Ariz. Another day in Arizona, another strong performance by a member of the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation.
Wednesday was Randy Wolf's turn to start and, as the Milwaukee starters have all through Cactus Legaue play, the veteran left-hander was outstanding, scattering five hits and a walk over four innings with four strikeouts in a 10-2 win over the Cubs at HoHoKam Stadium...
PHOENIX (AP) -- Manny Ramirez hit his first home run of the spring and Yoenis Cespedes went hitless again in Oakland's 8-6 win Tuesday over a Brewers split squad.
Ramirez blasted a solo homer to left-center in his first at-bat against Milwaukee right-hander Mike Fiers. Ramirez, who has not played in the majors since last April, had been 0 for 8 this spring. He also drew a walk...

Michael Saunders endured struggles on the field and losses in his personal life in 2011, but a more mature approach, a revamped swing and a new found energy and love for the game have him looking like a big leaguer once again.
I don't know about you, but I take great pride in taking down the Cubbies, no matter if it's Spring Training, the regular season, or heck, even a company picnic between the two teams (o.k., that last part isn't likely to have ever happened, but you get the point). The Brewers and more importantly George Kottaras came out swinging as Milwaukee took out the Chicago Cubs...

If I were to ask you to name 3 players on the Seattle Mariners, could you do it? Unless you are strong baseball fan, you would probably struggle after naming Felix Hernandez and Ichiro. That organization has been mired in bad business decisions over the years, and hasn’t been able to put together a solid winning club the last several years.
But one thing they are very good...
Kevin Millwood had a strong outing in his attempt to make the Seattle Mariners' roster.
The veteran right-hander pitched four scoreless innings in his most effective start of the spring, and Michael Saunders drove in a pair of runs with a double as part of a four-run sixth inning to lead the Mariners over the Kansas City Royals 6-2 Wednesday night.
Millwood, who allowed at...
