PHOENIX (AP) -- If the Milwaukee Brewers can get anywhere near the same type of starting pitching during the regular season that they are getting this spring, a second straight NL Central title would appear to be well within reach.
Left-hander Chris Narveson kept the momentum going on Thursday, pitching 3 2-3 scoreless innings in the Brewers' 6-4 victory over the San Diego Padres.
In three starts, Narveson has given up just one earned run in 9 1-3 innings. As a group, Narveson, Yovani Gallardo, Zack Greinke and Randy Wolf have allowed four earned runs in 30 1-3 innings for a 1.18 ERA.
Narveson didn't exactly draw rave reviews from manager Ron Roenicke after walking three. But Roenicke wasn't totally displeased, either.
"He got through it well," Roenicke said. "His command was off. He was all over the place, but he also made some great pitches."
Narveson has made 28 starts in each of the last two years, with a 23-17 record, including an 11-8 mark with a 4.48 ERA in 2011.
