TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Angels starter Scott Kazmir got his work in. Several of the Milwaukee hitters got their batting averages up, too.

Yuniesky Betancourt hit a three-run homer and the Brewers roughed up Kazmir on Thursday during an 11-8 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Kazmir allowed 10 runs, eight of them earned, and eight hits in five innings. For the spring, his ERA soared to 7.79.

Kazmir, 9-15 with a 5.94 ERA for the Angels in 2010, made his fifth Cactus League start and admitted this outing was discouraging.

``Of course,' Kazmir said. ``You've go to keep going out there. I felt like I pitched better than the last couple of outings.'

``I felt like I threw the ball well,' said Kazmir, who figures to be the Angels' No. 5 starter again this season. ``I felt like I was attacking the strike zone. A couple of things didn't go my way and it snowballed. That's baseball. You've got to have luck on your side. They were putting pretty good swings on.'

Chris Gomez, Craig Counsell and Erick Amonte each had two of the 13 Brewers' hits. Betancourt's first homer this spring, highlighted a four-run first inning.

Gomez doubled in the first, then tripled and scored in a four-run second.

Randy Wolf, 13-12 with a 4.17 ERA in 34 starts for the Brewers in 2010, made his fifth start of the spring. He allowed six hits and four runs over 5 1-3 innings.

Peter Bourjos and Maicer Izturis hit back-to-back homers off Wolf in the fifth.

Brandon Wood added a two-run homer in the eighth off Mark DiFelice, his fourth of the spring.

NOTES: Angels manager Mike Scioscia wants to see more from Kazmir. ``He's made progress, but he still hasn't shown that he's broke through whatever it is that's holding him back from getting back to where he was,' Scioscia said. ``Some of the things that plagued him today are the stuff we've seen, like (not) putting hitters away. ... You can look back and say that his linescore is ugly, but we've got to see as they get into the regular season. The consistency wasn't there. We'll see where this leads. Right now he's got to put some pitches together with consistency.' ... Brewers 3B Casey McGehee left the game in the first inning after being hit by Kazmir on the right kneecap.
