Lohse, Santiago sharp in first spring outings

Posted:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Milwaukee ace Kyle Lohse and Angels rotation hopeful Hector Santiago both had solid spring training debuts in Los Angeles' 3-2 victory over the Brewers on Thursday.

Lohse, 13-9 with a 3.54 ERA last season, allowed one hit and one run with three strikeouts in 2 1-3 innings.

Lohse retired the first six batters he faced. He allowed a leadoff double to C.J. Cron in the third. He later scored on Mike Trout's infield single off reliever Ariel Pena.

Santiago struggled early in 2014 and was demoted to the minors. But he recovered to go 6-9 with a 3.75 ERA. He allowed one hit with a walk and a strikeout in two scoreless innings.

Cron had 11 homers and 37 RBIs as a rookie last year and is in line to receive more at-bats this season with Josh Hamilton's status uncertain. Cron went 2 for 2.
