BREWERS 5, DIAMONDBACKS 4
Sunday, March 23
Parra took a 0.64 Cactus League ERA into his last start, but surrendered eight runs and 10 hits to the Royals, boosting his ERA to 4.58. Assuming the Brewers stick with veterans Dave Bush and Claudio Vargas in the rotation, the final opening could come down to Parra vs. right-hander Carlos Villanueva. Working in Parra's favor is that he would be the team's only left-handed starter, but Villanueva is more experienced and has been equally good this spring.
