I got to see a lot of Brewers Rule 5 Draft pick Wei-Chung Wang during Spring Training in Maryvale, Ariz. Pitching eight of out nine outings from the bullpen, Wang was impressive.

They committed another error and played a generally sloppy brand of baseball during a five-run Pirates fourth inning on Saturday, yet won again. The Brewers will try to do it one more time on Sunday, when Marco Estrada draws Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole at PNC Park.
