Brewers Beat Cubs Split Squad
PHOENIX (AP) -- Ray Olmedo's two-run double highlighted an eight-run eighth inning as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied for a 12-7 victory over a Chicago Cubs split-squad Wednesday.

The win gave the Brewers a three-game spring sweep of their National League Central Division rival.

The Cubs had taken a 6-4 lead in the top of the seventh, using three doubles to produce three runs. Micah Hoffpauir
Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo tuned up for his opening day start against Colorado on April 5 by giving up three hits in four shutout innings.

First baseman Prince Fielder also appeared ready to go for the regular season, hitting a third-inning grand slam off the large blue batter's eye in center field.
