Edmonds Homers, Brewers Fall

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jim Edmonds hit a two-run homer and an RBI double in the Milwaukee Brewers' 9-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Friday.

Edmonds' drive off Jon Garland in the second inning was his second homer of the spring. The Gold Glove center fielder made the team Thursday when the Brewers purchased his minor league contract.

Garland pitched five innings, yielding two runs and three hits. He missed his last scheduled start with a balky right shoulder.

Yovani Gallardo, Milwaukee's leading candidate to start on opening day, had a far less successful outing, allowing six runs and eight hits in three innings.

Gallardo had allowed four runs in 14 innings over his previous four spring appearances.
