Puig singles, then trapped off base as Dodgers beat Brewers

PHOENIX (AP) -

Yasiel Puig got his first hit of the spring and immediately followed it with his first baserunning blunder Friday as a Los Angeles Dodgers split squad beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-1.

After A.J. Ellis hit a three-run homer in the second inning, Puig blooped a single over first base and into short right field. Puig sprinted hard, but wound up trapped between first and second and was thrown out.

A dynamic player, Puig has been plagued by mistakes on the bases and in the field.

Puig drew two walks, in addition to his hit. Alex Guerrero and Darnell Sweeney also homered for the Dodgers.

Brewers starter Matt Garza gave up five runs, only one of them earned, and five hits in two innings. Milwaukee finished with two hits and made three errors.

Prized 18-year-old prospect Julio Urias threw 1 2-3 hitless innings for the Dodgers. He struck out two, walked three and picked off a runner.
