"I think all-around it was a good day," Moreland said. "Their guy had trouble throwing strikes, and our guys had some patient at-bats. We scratched out some runs and it carried through the rest of the day."
Jungmann, who was the Brewers' first-round pick in the 2011 First-Year Draft out of the University of Texas, had pitched well in his first two outings. Prior to Sunday, he had pitched four scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and two walks.
That changed against the Rangers. Jungmann, given a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, started his outing by walking Leonys Martin and giving up a single to Elvis Andrus. He then walked Shin-Soo Choo, Adrian Beltre and Prince Fielder to force in two runs. Moreland then singled in two runs and Smolinski did so with a triple. He scored on Carlos Corporan's sacrifice fly.
The Rangers finished with a spring-high 12 runs scored after just three in their previous two games. The 12 hits were their second most this spring. The outburst came after hitting coach Dave Magadan led the Rangers' morning meeting and talked about keeping the right approach at the plate.
"It was a great meeting," manager Jeff Banister said. "We were more stubborn today how we went about our job. We stayed on pitches better, not giving up and going the other way to the big part of the ballpark."
Up next for the Brewers: After enjoying their first off-day of the spring on Monday, the Brewers will return Tuesday for a matchup of former Rays teammates, with Matt Garza pitching for Milwaukee and James Shields for San Diego at Peoria Sports Complex. The 3:05 p.m. CT game will be televised by FS Wisconsin and will also air via an exclusive free audio webcast on Brewers.com.
