Ramirez hits 3-run double in return to Brewers

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run double in the first inning on the first pitch he saw this spring, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Kansas City Royals 7-6 on Saturday.
   The third baseman made his first start since having surgery in early January to remove a polyp from his colon. Ramirez went 2 for 2 with a walk and scored a run in his spring debut.
   Marco Estrada, making his third start of the spring for the Brewers, gave up three runs and seven hits in 3 1-3 innings.
   Royals right fielder Norichika Aoki, facing the team that traded him during the offseason, had a two-run single in the third inning. Second baseman Christian Colon was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run scored.
   Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke challenged that catcher Martin Maldonado was hit by an 0-2 pitch from John Lamb in the first inning that was called a ball by umpire Allen Bailey.
   Within a minute it was determined that the replay was inconclusive.
