Braun homers for first hit of spring training



PHOENIX (AP) — Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer for his first hit of spring training but Chris Heisey had an RBI triple and Juan Francisco hit a solo homer in a four-run fifth inning to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

Reds starter Mike Leake gave up three hits in two innings, but one hit was a solo home run to Mat Gamel in the second inning.

Mat Gamel also homered for the Brewers, who got a solid, two-inning effort from starter Zack Greinke.
