Brewers Beat Seattle Split Squad


PHOENIX (AP) -- Prince Fielder knocked in a pair of runs and Corey Hart hit a solo homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-2 exhibition win Monday over a Seattle Mariners split squad.

The Brewers scored three times in the first inning off right-hander Doug Fister. Ryan Braun hit a run-scoring single and Fielder followed with an opposite-field double to left.

Hart hit his second home run of the spring in the fifth inning.

Left-hander Manny Parra maintained a scoreless string by Brewers starters in their first five games (2-3). Milwaukee starters have pitched 11 innings, giving up six hits while walking three and striking out six.

Right-hander Dave Bush, expected to be a key part of the rotation, gave up a run on four hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Catcher Adam Moore had three hits and drove in Seattle's first run in the sixth inning.
