Randy Wolf struggles again, Brewers beat Diamondbacks 11-8

Posted: Updated:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Randy Wolf is entering his 13th major league season, long enough to know not to make too much of a bad spring start or two.

So his second rough outing in as many tries this year mostly was just annoying. The Milwaukee left-hander allowed a grand slam to minor leaguer Collin Cowgill in a five-run first inning of the Brewers' 11-8 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Wolf regrouped to throw a scoreless second and even doubled in a run in Milwaukee's four-run second inning.

He allowed five runs on five hits in one inning in his first start of the spring a week ago.

Wolf figures to move up in the rotation because Zack Greinke is likely to start the season on the disabled list.
