Wisconsin native Jordan Zimmermann saw his first action, giving up three hits and the Diamondbacks’ lone run of the game.
Catcher Manny Pina hit a 2-run homer in the first inning and finished 2-for-2 for the Brewers. Mark Mathias got the start at third base and went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.
Garrett Mitchell, Milwaukee’s 2020 first-round pick, made his Spring Training debut. He singled to centerfield in his lone at-bat.
