Prince Fielder looking good against his own Crew

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers completed two days of intrasquad action with a five-inning affair today that the home team won 10-4 with the help of Prince Fielder's two-run double and three RBIs.

Infielder Joe Dillon also ripped a two-run double for the winners and outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. singled in a pair of runs.

Outfielder Gabe Kapler chipped in with an RBI double.

Gwynn was shaken up for a few moments when he was struck on the nose by a throw from catcher Vinny Rottino while stealing second base in the fourth inning. Gwynn was attended to and remained in the game.

Most of the scoring came at the expense of minor league pitchers Steve Bray and Tim Dillard, who did not retire a batter in combining to allow nine runs.

Right-hander Carlos Villanueva, vying for a spot in the rotation, started for the home team and allowed one hit, two walks and two runs.

Earlier in the day, Villanueva signed a contract for the 2008 season.

The Brewers reassigned minor-league right-hander Mark DiFelice to their minor league camp. DiFelice is recovering from knee surgery and was unable to pitch.

The Brewers open the exhibition schedule Thursday by playing Oakland in Phoenix.
