The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Houston Astros 8-1 in their final Cactus League game Tuesday. Zach Davies (2-1) took the loss and gave up five earned runs in three innings. The Brewers could only manage four hits off four Astro pitchers as Charlie Morton got the win going 5 1/3 strong innings by allowing only one hit. The Brewers will now head to the west coast and face the San Diego Padres in the opening regular season game at 3:10 pm on Thursday. Milwaukee is still finalizing their roster and announced the release of veteran pitcher Yovani Gallardo.
