Braun homers to lead Brewers past Dodgers


GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chris Capuano pitched six innings in his final preparation for his new spot as the Dodgers' No. 3 starter and caused a stir by throwing behind Ryan Braun in a Los Angeles split squad's 9-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

   Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said before the game starter Ted Lilly will start the season on the disabled list. Slowed by a stiff neck, Lilly pitched a bullpen session for the first time since March 21.

   Capuano threw 83 pitches, including one in the top of the sixth that went behind Braun. First-base umpire Bill Miller acted quickly to prevent any chance of a confrontation. Miller alerted home-plate umpire Michael Lusky who warned both dugouts.

   Braun hit a towering home run in the first.
