Brewers rookie turns in nice intrasquad start


PHOENIX (AP) -- Milwaukee rookie Taylor Jungmann made a nice start in an intrasquad game Saturday, striking out Brewers stars Ryan Braun and Rickie Weeks.

   Jungmann, a first-round draft pick last June, pitched two perfect innings. The 22-year-old right-hander also struck out Mat Gamel, retired Nyjer Morgan and Corey Hart on grounders and got Aramis Ramirez on a fly ball.

   Braun received shouts of encouragement from the few fans in attendance. The All-Star left fielder recently avoided a 50-game suspension when he won his appeal of a failed drug test.

   The Brewers open their exhibition schedule Sunday when they host San Francisco.
