Weeks hits 2-run HR, Brewers beat White Sox 5-4
MILWAUKEE 5, CHI WHITE SOX 4

By JOE TOTORAITIS
Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A strong finish to spring training meant
something to the Milwaukee Brewers.



Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer in the first inning and the
Brewers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Saturday in the
exhibition finale for both teams.



"Obviously, this game doesn't count, but it feels good to go out
there and pitch well and hit well," Milwaukee catcher Jonathan
Lucroy said.



Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the fourth for the White Sox.



The Brewers had 12 hits, highlighted by Weeks' third home run of
the spring. They used nine pitchers and really only ran into
trouble in the fifth.



Chicago scratched out three runs, one earned, against Tom
Gorzelanny. Throwing errors put runners in scoring position for
Gordon Beckham and Dewayne Wise, who each drove in a run.
Brandon Short added an RBI double, but Hector Gimenez grounded
out to end the inning.



The White Sox had one hit off three relievers the rest of the
way.



"We pitched very well, considering it was pretty much a bullpen
day," Lucroy said. "I thought that we threw real well.
Hopefully, we can carry this over into Monday."



The Brewers open the season at home against the Colorado
Rockies.



Gavin Floyd, scheduled to start Thursday for the White Sox
against Kansas City in the finale of a three-game series, gave
up Weeks' homer.



Jose Quintana threw a scoreless second before Dylan Axelrod took
over to start the third. He threw 5 1-3 shutout innings before
tiring in the eighth. Axelrod, slated to start Friday against
Seattle, was pulled after RBI doubles by Lucroy and Sean Halton.



Logan Schafer's run-scoring single off Matt Zaleski put
Milwaukee ahead.



White Sox manager Robin Ventura wasn't too worried about
Axelrod's eighth inning because the team accomplished what it
set out to do with him.



"We were extending him there with him being the fifth starter,"
Ventura said. "He threw fine. It's good to see."



NOTES: After the game, the White Sox reassigned five players to
minor league camp: RHP Ramon Troncoso, RHP Jeff Gray, C Bryan
Anderson, INF Steve Tolleson and INF Josh Bell. RHP Brian
Omogrosso was optioned to Triple-A Nashville. ... RHP Alfredo
Figaro and OF Khris Davis won the final two opening day roster
spots for Milwaukee. ... White Sox RHP Jesse Crain made the
opening day roster. He had been a question mark, but his strong
showing Friday night and no lingering effects of strained right
adductor erased any doubt. It was his third appearance in the
last five days after pitching in only three games this spring
due to the injury. ... The Brewers wore uniforms designed by Ben
Peters of Richfield, Minn., who won the team's Design a
YOUniform contest. ... The two-game exhibition series drew
28,793.
