TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Brewers pitcher Chris Capuano was an All-Star for Milwaukee last year, but he certainly didn't have his best stuff yesterday.
He lasted only 1 2/3 innings in his first start of the spring, a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels in Arizona.
He allowed three runs, four hits and three walks.
He gave up a leadoff homer to Casey Kotchman in the Angels' three-run second.
He says he was over-thinking his mechanics instead of just being aggressive.
Laynce Nix hit his first homer of the spring in the seventh off Angels prospect Nick Adenhart.
Nix also singled.
Brewers shortstop J.J. Hardy had two doubles in the loss.
Kelvim Escobar pitched two scoreless innings in his first spring training start for the Angels.
