Giants 8, Brewers 4

Brewers ace Ben Sheets joked that he's rounding back into his spring training form.

Sheets was tagged for his first five runs of the spring as the Giants batted around in the second inning of Milwaukee's 8-4 loss to San Francisco in Phoenix today.

The right-hander says it reminded him of 2004, when he went 12-14 for the year but struck out 264 and had a 2.70 ERA.

He says that in his best year he probably had his worst spring.

Sheets gave up eight hits and two walks.

He allowed all his runs in the second inning with two outs after he got a break when Cain singled to center field and Cameron threw out Eliezer Alfonzo at the plate by several steps.

But the next five Giants all had hits, too, with the biggest blow being Aaron Rowand's two-run double.

Sheets said he was throwing all fastballs and changeups, but finally resorted to his big curveball to get out of the inning when he got Dan Ortmeier to ground out for the second time.
