Braun mum on ESPN report

By Associated Press

POSTED:


MILWAUKEE >> Ryan Braun would rather talk about the Milwaukee Brewers’ win Tuesday night than himself.

Carlos Gomez scored from first on Yuniesky Betancourt’s line drive to right-center in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

“We need to start winning some more games,” Braun said. “Carlos Gomez did a phenomenal job with the bases right there. (Kyle) Lohse gave us a solid start. The bullpen was great again. It’s nice to beat a good team.”

What Braun did not want to talk about was an ESPN report saying that MLB is seeking to suspend several players, including the Milwaukee slugger, who have been linked to a Florida anti-aging clinic and its director.

“I’ve already addressed everything related to the Miami situation,” Braun said. “I addressed it in spring training. The truth has not changed. I don’t know the specifics of the story that came out today, but I’ve already addressed it. I’ve commented on it. I’ll say nothing further about it.”

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke also knew few details about the situation.

“Yeah, to be honest, I didn’t really hear anything before (the game),” Roenicke said. “I just heard a little more now. I don’t know anything about it. I know Major League Baseball is handling it. That is all I really know.”

John Axford (2-3) got the win with a scoreless 10th.

Giants 2, Blue Jays 1

SAN FRANCISCO >> Tim Lincecum ended a three-start losing streak, Andres Torres hit a two-run homer and San Francisco beat Melky Cabrera and Toronto.

Cabrera had two hits in his return to AT&T Park with the Blue Jays for the first time since his 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test last Aug. 15.
