PHOENIX (AP) -- Jeff Suppan recovered from a poor start and allowed six hits and five earned runs with three walks and four strikeouts in the Milwaukee Brewers 10-5 loss to the Los Angeles on Friday.
After allowing six of the first seven batters he faced to reach base, Suppan retired eight of his last 11.
The 35-year-old right-hander's spring numbers are not pretty. He has an ERA of 9.00 in 12 innings with six home runs allowed to go along with four walks and nine strikeouts.
Anaheim's Bobby Abreu, who came in hitting .111, homered in the first inning off Suppan, and Juan Rivera added a two-run double off the left-center field wall.
Kendry Morales reached base in his first three at-bats, including a fifth-inning home run off of non-roster invitee Chris Smith.
