PHOENIX (AP) -- Jemile Weeks had two hits and tackled his older brother Rickie to end a rundown, helping the Oakland Athletics beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-0 on Tuesday.
Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone pitched three innings of one-hit ball. Milone is one of four players acquired from Washington for right-hander Gio Gonzalez on December 23.
Milone walked Rickie Weeks to lead off the game but picked him off first base. Jemile was the last player with the ball in the ensuing rundown and he chased his brother from halfway between first and second before getting down a diving tag at the first-base bag.
Yovani Gallardo struck out four in two shutout innings for Milwaukee. Reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun went 0 for 2 and is hitless in four at-bats this spring.
