3 Hits For Joe Panik As San Francisco Giants Beat Brewers

PHOENIX Ariz. (AP) — Joe Panik had three hits and Chris Stratton pitched three scoreless innings to lead the San Francisco Giants over the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 Thursday.

Panik, who missed the last two months of the 2015 season because a stress fracture in his back, entered 3-for-13 in spring training. He doubled in the first, singled in the third and hit an RBI double in the fourth.

Stratton, the Giants' first-round pick in the 2012 amateur draft, induced seven ground-ball outs among 11 batters. He struck out two.

Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson allowed six of 12 hitters to reach base in two-plus innings for the Brewers, but agave up just one run.

The Brewers had three hits — none until Alex Pressley singled with one out in the fifth.
