PHOENIX -

Michael Saunders homered and Justin Morneau drew a bases-loaded walk, helping Canada beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 Tuesday in a prep game ahead of the World Baseball Classic.

Tyson Gillies and Cale Iorg had RBI singles for Canada in a four-run eighth off loser Michael Gonzalez. Left fielder Adam Loewen jumped against the wall to take away an extra-base hit from Josh Prince with two on and two outs.

Saunders homered off Wily Peralta in the fourth.

Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez had RBI hits for the Brewers, and Khris Davis hit long home run over the grass berm in left-center in the seventh.

Chris Narveson, trying to earn a rotation job, allowed one run and three hits in 2 2-3 innings.

Bobby Crosby, looking to make the Brewers as an infield utility player, made his spring training debut after missing the first eight games with a strained left quadriceps. Crosby walked and struck out.
