Brantley's sizzling spring continues, Tribe tops Brewers

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis drove in two runs apiece to send the Cleveland Indians to their 18th win of the spring, 10-2 over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

Brantley tripled, singled and walked to increase his spring average to .522.

"He is such a good hitter," manager Terry Francona said. "Regardless of what he does opening day. I can see him getting better as he learns the league."

Kipnis doubled and singled. Lonnie Chisenhall hit his third home run off Brewers starter Yovanni Gallardo. Nick Swisher went deep against Francisco Rodriguez.

The Brewers managed three singles against Justin Masterson, who had his final spring start before opening the season on the mound in Oakland.

"I don't know what the numbers are but Masty came in prepared to haul a lot of innings," Francona said.

Carlos Gomez singled and robbed catcher Luke Carlin of an extra-base hit, making a leaping catch against the centerfield wall.

Brewer's minor leaguer Mitch Haniger hit his second home run off Vinnie Pestano.
