Ariel Pena had a relatively clean outing on Sunday afternoon. He pitched one and one third of an inning and allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two batters.
Pena made his Major League debut for the Brewers last season and started four games down the stretch. He has command and home run issues, but there is some strikeout potential. He'll probably begin the season in the minor leagues and replace an injured starter or bullpen arm if and when the time comes.
Pena pitched five innings, allowing two earned runs in the Brewers 8-4 win against the Reds. He picked up his second win of the season, and had five strikeouts in the game,.
In three starts with the Brewers, Pena is 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA and has 16 strikeouts in 18 innings pitched.
Pena got the start for the Brewers and went five innings allowing two runs on three hits and walked four in the Brewers 5-2 loss to the Marlins. He struck out four batters in the game.
