``Anytime as a reliever you put up zeroes your confidence builds up time and time again,' Beliveau said. ``Right now I feel good.'

Brewers starter Tyler Thornburg pitching three innings of no-hit ball, striking out two and walking two. Texas scored the only two runs of the unofficial game in the top of the fourth against Brewers left-hander Tom Gorzelanny.

Lance Berkman and Geovany Soto walked and Brandon Allen made it 1-0 with an RBI single to left. Leonys Martin followed with a single to right before Gorzelanny struck out Mike Olt to end the inning. The game was called in the fourth inning after a 19-minute rain delay and will not be made up.

Brewers first baseman Corey Hart's MRI exam on Friday went well and he remains on track to return sometime in May.

``They liked what they saw,' Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. ``Corey's off crutches and can drive again, so he's a happy camper.'

Hart, who had surgery on his right knee on Jan. 25.

``If he heals faster, great,' Roenicke said. ``We'll be trying to be able to cover him for whatever. If it's two months, we're trying to get by without him for those two months.'

NOTES: Milwaukee 1B Mat Gamel had surgery Friday on his previously surgically repaired anterior cruciate ligament. Roenicke had no details other than the surgery ``went well.' . Brewers RHP Kelvim Escobar, who left his first and only appearance of the spring on Sunday with hand weakness, threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Thursday. The 36-year-old has pitched in only one game since 2007 because of chronic shoulder issues. . Rangers SS Yangervis Solarte made his first start of the spring.
