MILWAUKEE 2, OAKLAND 1
By JONATHAN DALTON
PHOENIX (AP) -- Ryan Braun homered in his first at-bat of spring
training and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Oakland Athletics
2-1 Saturday in a spring opener.
Braun will soon be leaving the club to prepare for the World
Baseball Classic with Team USA. The former NL MVP hit a solo
shot with two outs in the first inning off Jesse Chavez.
Mike Fiers, in the mix for a spot in Milwaukee's starting
rotation despite a late-season fade in 2012, allowed two hits
and a walk in two scoreless innings and struck out one.
Brewers closer John Axford added a scoreless third inning.
Oakland shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima, who signed a two-year, $6.5
million contract in the offseason, made his debut. The
30-year-old walked and popped out in his two plate appearances.
