The Milwaukee Brewers won their final tune-up of the spring with a 5-4 victory over their American League neighbors to the south, the Chicago White Sox.
Just because it was an exhibition did not mean there was not drama in the see-saw affair. The Brewers’ Jesus Aguilar and Kirk Nieuwenhuis knocked in go-ahead hits, only to be matched a half inning later by the White Sox. After the White Sox’ Jose Abreu tied the game in the 7th inning with a home run, Brewers prospect Kyle Wren knocked in the game-winning run with an opposite field single.
The win gave the Brewers a record of 17-16-1 for the spring, a mark that will wiped clean in time for tomorrow’s regular season home opener against the Colorado Rockies. First pitch is 1:10 p.m.
