Lucroy, Braun lead Brewers beat Indians

Brewers open regular season at Miller Park against Colorado Rockies on April 6

Lucroy hit his team-leading fifth homer and Braun had an RBI double in the spring training finale for both teams.

Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson stuck out seven in 4 1-3 innings but was in constant trouble, allowing three runs on nine hits and three walks. He left after a two-run homer by Brandon Moss was followed by a double from Lonnie Chisenhall.

Nelson will begin the season as the Brewers’ fifth starter.
