Brewers take out Royals 8-3 thanks to good pitching

PHOENIX (AP) -- Left-hander Manny Parra and right-hander Dave Bush are making it hard for the Milwaukee Brewers to choose between them.

Parra turned in five brilliant innings and Bush was strong the rest of the way as Milwaukee beat the Kansas City Royals 8-3 today.

J.J. Hardy and Corey Hart each hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs.

Parra and Bush both performed well in the ongoing competition for spots in Milwaukee's rotation.

Parra and Bush are in a five-man competition with right-handers Carlos Villanueva and Claudio Vargas and lefty Chris Capuano for the three rotation spots behind Ben Sheets and Jeff Suppan.
