Brewers rally for split squad win over Colorado 7-6

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jason Hammel continued his strong string of performances in his first spring training with the Rockies, but Brewers prospect Lorenzo Cain homered and Milwaukee's split squad rallied for a 7-6 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Hammel struck out three in four innings and allowed two unearned runs, and the Rockies scored four runs in the seventh, including a three-run homer by Matt Miller.

Milwaukee scored two in the seventh and two in the eighth to win it, capped by a two-out, full-count homer by Cain.

Hammel already has a rotation spot locked up with the Rockies, and manager Jim Tracy is excited about his potential after the right-hander went 10-8 with a 4.33 ERA since being acquired in April from Tampa Bay.
