Eric Thames hits his first homer of the spring, as the Milwaukee Brewers play to a 7-7 exhibition tie with the Chicago Cubs in Mesa, Arizona.
Thames, the replacement to Chris Carter at first base for the Crew, had two hits on the day. Milwaukee starter Zach Davies gave up two solo homers to Kris Bryant and Wilson Contreras. Meanwhile, right hander Wily Peralta is back with the Brewers after making one start for his native Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, striking out six in four innings in a win for his team on Sunday -- and he said it had the pressure of a World Series game. The Brewers will play the Colorado Rockies this (Wednesday) afternoon.
