Pitching hit hard once again

After the game, Casanova learned that his fellow catcher and close friend Henry Blanco had been traded to Atlanta for reliever Jose Cabrera and catcher Paul Bako.

``I'm shocked,'' Casanova said. ``This might mean that I'm going to play a little more, but I'm going to miss Henry. Everybody is going to miss him.''

Casanova's homer off White Sox pitcher Dan Wright (0-3) in the bottom of the first came after a two-run double by Izzy Alcantara. The Brewers scored four runs in the inning after a shaky outing by Nick Neugebauer in the top of the first.

Neugebauer, sidelined by shoulder problems and an upper respiratory virus earlier in camp, allowed five hits and five runs in the first inning of his spring debut. He settled down in the second inning, but was removed when he reached his 50-pitch limit with two out.

Brewers manager Davey Lopes was not surprised by Neugebauer's performance, which he considered typical for a first outing.

``His velocity was good and he felt fine. That's what was important,'' Lopes said.

Lefty Derrin Ebert pitched two scoreless innings to pick up the victory. Mike DeJean, who is in line to become the Brewers' closer, worked the ninth to pick up the save.

Brewers outfielder Ryan Thompson hit a two-run homer off Keith Foulke in the sixth. Casanova, Alcantara, Thompson, Lenny Harris and Ryan Christenson each had two hits for Milwaukee.

Joe Crede drove in two runs for the White Sox, who got three hits from Paul Konerko.
