Cubs beat Brewers 4-2

Published On: Mar 03 2014 06:07:20 PM CST

MARYVALE, AZ -

Ryan Braun raised his spring batting average to .800 with a double and a single in three plate appearances and made a nice catch in his new right field position, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to 4-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs Monday.

Braun has four hits, two for extra bases, and two walks in seven plate appearances this spring.

He walked in the first inning, doubled to the gap in left-center and scored in the fourth, and singled in the fifth before being replaced by pinch-runner Kentrail Davis.

Davis scored on a two-out double by Carlos Gomez, who picked up his second RBI of the spring.

Shortstop Javier Baez had two hits including a solo home run for the Cubs, who won for the first time in four Cactus League games.

Walter Ibrra's two-run single in the seventh put the Cubs ahead to stay.
