retiring the last six batters he faced. He allowed four hits,
walked one and struck out four.

four-run rally in the eighth inning with a two-run triple and the
White Sox added another run off Brewers closer Derrick Turnbow in
Turnbow's third save of the spring was an eventful one. He

scored on a suicide squeeze by Jeff Cirillo.
After Spivey's home run in the first, Geoff Jenkins drove in
Lyle Overbay with a slicing two-out double to left to give

the second inning to put Milwaukee up 3-0. Brady Clark drove in
Hardy with a single to right-center, but was thrown out by Jermaine
Dye at second base.

but was lifted in the fifth inning after he walked pinch hitter
Pablo Ozuna to load the bases with one out.
Tommy Phelps relieved Davis and allowed Rowand to score on a
grounder before Tadahito Iguchi popped up to end the inning.
Davis allowed one run on four hits, walked one and struck out
