Brewers outlast Giants 10-8 in spring training baseball


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Catcher Gregg Zaun kept up his solid spring with a two-run double and Milwaukee beat the San Francisco Giants 10-8 on Sunday.

Brewers starter Jeff Suppan gave up four solo home runs.

The game was played in front of a second straight sellout crowd of 12,000 at Scottsdale Stadium, including commissioner Bud Selig, a former owner of the Brewers.

Suppan gave up home runs to Aaron Rowand and Aubrey Huff in the first inning, but the Brewers rallied to take a 3-2 lead with three runs in the second. Milwaukee scored four more times in the third, two on Zaun's double.

The 38-year-old Zaun, who signed as a free agent Dec. 4, now has eight RBIs, sharing the team lead with shortstop Alcides Escobar.

Two more Giants homered off Suppan in the fourth, Fred Lewis and Nate Schierholtz. Steffan Wilson and Joe Inglett also had a pair of RBIs for Milwaukee.
