Brewers 13, White Sox 7
By Associated Press
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chicago White Sox starter Gavin Floyd allowed four runs in 4 2-3 innings in Chicago's final spring game in Arizona, a 13-7 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Camelback Ranch. Floyd gave up seven hits, struck out four and walked two.
Brooks Conrad hit a solo home run for Milwaukee off Floyd -- his fourth homer of the spring.
Floyd's problem inning was the second, when he allowed three runs.
"The second inning, I got in the stretch and started rushing a little bit, got behind a lot of hitters, but bounced back," Floyd said. "Even the hits they got, they were good pitches, and I got weak contact for the most part. I made a couple of mistakes with two strikes, but overall I felt strong. Even when things went wrong, I was able to get refocused."
The White Sox drew 98,198 fans to Camelback this spring, their highest total in the ballpark's four years. Average attendance was 6,137, the second-highest average since 6,280 in 2010.
The Brewers scored their final seven runs against White Sox minor leaguers. Several regulars for both teams didn't play.
