Braun Has Two RBIs, Helps Brewers Beat Indians
Ryan Braun drove in two runs, doubling his spring training total, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 Monday.
Norichika Aoki broke a 5-all tie in the ninth with an RBI triple for the Brewers.
Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer for Cleveland. Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan hit two doubles in his first at-bats since March 15. He had been out with a sore back.
Braun went 1 for 4. He’s hitting only .120 with four RBIs after an offseason in which shortly after he won the NL MVP he was suspended 50 games for a positive drug test, only to have it overturned last month.
Indians opening-day starter Justin Masterson gave up five runs over six innings.
Brewers starter Chris Narveson yielded four runs over 6 1-3 innings.
