Taylor’s Hot Streak Not Enough, A’s Lose To Brewers In Cactus League

PHOENIX (CBS / AP) — Ryan Braun hit his second homer of the spring and added a single to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Oakland Athletics 7-2 on Wednesday.

Braun raised his batting average from .800 to .875 with the hits and now has seven hits in his first eight Cactus League at-bats. He has also walked twice, giving him a .900 on-base percentage.

Braun lined a single to right center in the first before taking an 0-2 change-up from Oakland starter Jarrod Parker down the left-field line. Parker allowed only two hits in 3 1/3 innings, both to Braun. Both of Braun’s home runs this spring have come against the A’s.

Michael Taylor had a home run and a double, scoring both runs for the A’s. He now has five hits in the last two days.
