It’s in the books. A’s lose 7-1 in their Cactus League opener to Milwaukee. I imagine they’ll mull it over for all of 10 seconds, before moving on to the next task at hand — a morning workout before the home opener vs. the Brewers at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
Dan Johnson hit a solo homer for the only A’s run, a good start for his bid to earn a roster spot. Tomorrow, we get to see Mike Sweeney for the first time.
