Greinke has rough outing, Rangers beat Brewers 8-1


SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Zack Greinke threw two tumultuous innings for Milwaukee and Michael Young drove in his first runs of the spring for Texas in the Rangers' 8-1 win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Greinke gave up five hits in two innings, but allowed only one run. Greinke, who was slated to throw 45 pitches and go three innings, needed 38 to get through the two innings and threw 22 for strikes.

Young singled off Greinke in the first, then added an RBI single, two-run triple and a sacrifice fly to finish 3 for 3 with four RBIs.

Rangers starter Matt Harrison cruised through three innings. After Carlos Gomez singled to lead off the game and Zelous Wheeler drew a one-out walk, Harrison retired his final eight batters.
