Braun homers in return to Miller Park

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun homered and doubled in his first action at Miller Park since his doping suspension, but Milwaukee lost 5-4 to the Kansas City Royals in an exhibition game Friday night.

Braun's homer traveled 409 feet over the wall near straightaway center, giving Milwaukee a short-lived, two-run lead in the third. The hometown crowd showered Braun with overwhelming applause.

The 2011 NL MVP went 2 for 3 with three RBIs. He's now hitting .412 this spring.

It was Braun's first appearance in a game at Miller since striking out as a pinch hitter on July 21. He was suspended the next day for the remainder of the 2013 season, covering 65 games.

Billy Butler hit a solo drive for Kansas City in the fifth.
