Ryan Braun homers twice for Brewers

PHOENIX — Ryan Braun hit a pair of home runs and Rickie Weeks also connected as a Milwaukee Brewers split-squad beat the San Diego Padres 5-4 Monday.

Right-hander Shaun Marcum, making his first start in nearly two weeks since experiencing shoulder tightness in a start against the Chicago White Sox, gave up three runs and four hits while throwing 68 pitches in four innings.

Two of those hits were home runs, one by Will Venable, the first batter of the game, and the other a two-run shot by Brad Hawpe in the fourth.
