SAN DIEGO-Just as Jesús Aguilar slugged his way onto the Milwaukee Brewers' opening-day roster with a torrid spring, Eric Sogard may have played his way into a more regular role with a career series at Petco Park. "Davies kept us in there today", said Brewers manager Craig Counsell.
Early on it looked like San Diego could make a series split happen when Hunter Renfroe sent a 389 foot home run to left center field. His earned run average coming into the game was 5.80. He was 4-for-4 Thursday with a double, a walk and drove in the first three runs scored for the Brewers. Espino had 40 strikeouts against only five walks in 39 innings.
His line for the four-game series?
He was 9-for-15 in the series with the two doubles, a homer, five RBIs, four runs scored and two walks, reaching base 11 times in 17 plate appearances.
Sogard said he couldn't ever remember feeling this good at the plate at any time during his previous 435-game stint with the Oakland A's.
"You just got to try and ride the wave", the shortstop said.

Jett Bandy and Domingo Santana hit two-run singles, helping the surging Brewers to a 6-3 rain-interrupted victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday at cold, wet and windy Wrigley Field.
The Brewers had only two hits going into the ninth before getting four straight with one out against reliever Brandon Maurer (0-3). Also expected to start Friday is 1B-OF Eric Thames, who pinch-hit Thursday after missing four starts in San Diego with strep throat. Pregame coverage for a rare Friday afternoon game begins at 12:45 p.m. on the Brewers Radio Network.
"It was absolutely a battle of wills", Sogard said.
The left-handed Buchter entered the game to face the left-handed Thames and Sogard.
Sogard fouled off five, two-strike pitches from Buchter before doubling on a full-count fastball to drive home Keon Broxton and Orlando Arcia to erase a 2-1 deficit.
"If there was a better at-bat this year in major-league baseball I'd like to see it", Counsell said. "To me, that's it for sure".
