PHOENIX (AP) -- Geoff Jenkins doubled in the first and sixth innings to drive in three runs, as the Milwaukee Brewers ended their home exhibition schedule with a 4-2 victory over a skeleton crew from the Los Angeles Angels yesterday.

The Angels' squad was mainly minor league players because most of the major leaguers were in Los Angeles for a night game against the Dodgers at Dodgers Stadium.

Brewers manager Ned Yost gave every player on his roster playing time.

Infielder Ozzie Chavez knocked in Milwaukee's other run with a two-out single in the fourth.

The Brewers broke camp after the game to head for Texas, where they will play the Rangers in exhibition games today and tomorrow.

The Brewers announced a pair of player moves before the game.

Right-hander Grant Balfour cleared release waivers, signed a minor-league contract and was assigned to Class AA Huntsville.

Outfielder Laynce Nix was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, retroactive to March 23.
