PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- San Diego right-hander Clay Hensley helped the Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in exhibition baseball yesterday, as he continues to recover from a bout with the flu.
One mistake he made was a home run he gave up to J.J. Hardy in the fourth inning.
Claudio Vargas of the Brewers allowed eight baserunners in 4 1/3 innings but let only two score.
Milwaukee manager Ned Yost says Vargas would have been better if it weren't for the desert elements.
A routine fly ball by San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez turned into an opposite-field RBI double, and Brian Giles got a gift single when Brewers shortstop Hardy lost a ball in the sun.
Rickie Weeks, the Brewers' new leadoff hitter, was 1-for-3 with a stolen base as he continues adjusting to his new role.
Weeks is hitting .279.
