Brewers fall to Oakland

PHOENIX (AP) John Jaha homered and drove in three runs Sunday as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1.

Jason Giambi hit his first home run of the spring as the A's improved to a major-league best 13-3, winning 11 of their last 13 games.

Kevin Appier, 3-0 this spring, allowed three hits in five scoreless innings, striking out four and walking one. Appier has allowed one run in 12 spring innings.

"My command is a little bit above average, but it's still not terrific," said Appier, who threw 64 pitches.
