PHOENIX (AP) -- Chris Young made his first spring training start today in Phoenix, pitching two innings and getting the win as the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 12-4.
He pitched a day before his wife, Liz, is to be induced into labor with the couple's first child in nearby Scottsdale. He says that means the baby will be arriving a couple days early, and he expects to pitch for his next scheduled game Friday.
Young says his wife is so uncomfortable now that she's glad to accommodate and have labor induced. They've picked out a name for their daughter -- Catherine Elizabeth.
The two teams met for the first time since Milwaukee won the final two games last season and forced San Diego into a one-game playoff for the NL wild card. The Padres lost to Colorado.
It was also the first time new Brewers center fielder Mike Cameron played against his old team. Cameron spent the last two seasons in San Diego and won one of his three Gold Gloves there.
Brewers starter Jeff Suppan gave up two runs in two innings. The Padres broke open the game in the final three innings with two runs in the seventh and six more in the eighth, including Paul McAnulty's three-run homer.
