MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Carlos Gomez homered and Taylor Green had two hits to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat a Chicago Cubs split squad 4-3 on Sunday.
Gomez and Green backed an impressive outing by Brewers right-hander Marco Estrada before he left to join Team Mexico for the World Baseball Classic. Estrada pitched four scoreless innings. He allowed one hit, walked two and struck out three.
Green singled home the second run of a two-run rally in the first inning against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson. Gomez's homer leading off the third came against reliever Drew Carpenter.
Jackson had a rough outing. He gave up two runs and two hits in two innings. He also walked three, hit a batter with a pitch and made a throwing error on an attempted double play.
