Braun makes statement with HR in first spring at-bat
MILWAUKEE - Ryan Braun sent a statement to critics by homering in his first at-bat of spring training Thursday.
Braun hit a two-run homer off Oakland A's starter Tommy Milone in the first inning, helping propel the Brewers to an 11-3 win in their Cactus Leagu opener.
Braun received some boos in his second at-bat. Juan Francisco homered twice for the Brewers.
