Milwaukee at Arizona

    Diamondbacks 14, Brewers 3


    PHOENIX (AP) - Corey Hart homered in his second game back from knee surgery and the Milwaukee Brewers ended spring training with a 14-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Diamondbacks shortstop Willie Bloomquist homered, doubled and singled to drive in three runs and stole two bases in the Cactus League finale for the Diamondbacks, held at home ballpark Chase Field.

    "I am not worrying about the stats part of it, I just want to feel good," Bloomquist said. "I want to feel like myself in the box. Whether I am getting results or not, during spring training I could care less."

    He also faces a major decision. His big day came after his at-bat music was "Almost Paradise," the love theme from the 1984 movie "Footloose." It's not the most intimidating track to dig in to.

    "Over the course of your career you have to make some tough decisions and this is going to be one of them but the two times they played it I have gotten hits," Bloomquist said. "If I do keep it and the writing could be on the wall, as long as everyone knows that it wasn't me that decided it."

    Bloomquist will start in place of the injured Stephen Drew this season.

    Chris Young drove in three runs for the Diamondbacks and Jake Williams, the son of Diamondbacks third-base coach Matt Williams, added a two-run double for Arizona.

    On March 6, Hart had arthroscopic surgery to repair two cartilage tears in his right knee, and he made his spring debut Tuesday night with a double in the Brewers' 5-3 loss to Arizona.

    Joe Saunders allowed three runs in five innings, allowing five hits with five strikeouts and a walk.

    Brewers starter Shaun Marcum gave up five earned runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings.

    "I wanted to get my pitch count up," Marcum said. "I wasn't really focused on results or anything like that. It was more getting the pitch count up and making some quality pitches. I was able to do that."

    Reliever Manny Parra did not retire any of the six batters his faced in the eighth inning, when the Diamondbacks scored six runs. Parra was charged with four runs, four hits and two walks.

    NOTES: The Diamondbacks announced several roster moves to get down to 25. Reliever Takashi Saito will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list with a right calf strain. ... LHP Mike Zagurski was outrighted to Triple-A Reno and C Ryan Budde, INF Cody Ransom and OF A.J. Pollack were also reassigned to Reno. ... Milwaukee finished the Cactus League with a 15-16-2 mark, their first losing spring campaign since 2007.
