• Rex Brothers was strong until the last three outings, two of which saw him give up runs. He walked a batter then gave up Hector Sanchez's two-run, wind-blown homer to right field that ended the Rockies' 8-6 loss to the Giants on Wednesday. He also bounced three pitches.
"He's trying to find his groove," manager Walt Weiss said. "With all these guys, when that bell rings, that switch gets flipped and your whole mentality changes. The spring doesn't matter one way or the other. You don't know whether you had a good one or a bad one."
