PHOENIX (AP) Ryan Braun already is seeing a difference in his swing this spring.The longtime Milwaukee Brewers star was the designated hitter in his exhibition debut Jon Niese Jersey , going 1 for 3 on Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.Hes made some swing changes and made an attempt to tweak some little things and try to get in the zone a little bit sooner, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. Hes been really pleased with the results, the batting practice results. Now he has to take it into the game and get some results. He had a good day. Its nice to get the first hit.Braun has noticed the ball is carrying more during batting practice and its not just because of the dry Arizona weather.Well see how it translates to game action, Braun said. Obviously, Ive taken batting practice on the same field out here for a long time and the ball is carrying significantly further than it has in a long time, maybe ever. Im very encouraged by what Ive seen so far and how Ive felt so far.The Brewers arent counting on Braun to duplicate his NL MVP season in 2011 when he batted .332 and hit 33 home runs with 111 RBIs. On Friday, Travis Shaw provided the power with a pair of home runs off Arizonas Zack Godley.Last season, his 12th in the big leagues, Braun batted .254 with 20 home runs and 64 RBIs. Friday was his first in-game test on the changes and its still too early for him to gauge whether the changes will make a difference.Itll take 15, 20 at-bats Im sure before Ill be at a place I can judge it, Braun said. In (batting practice), it feels good and I feel like Im able to repeat the subtle changes and subtle differences I was trying to make in my swing. Its too early to really judge how it feels in a game. I felt good today, first day. I felt I was staying on offspeed pitches for the most part. Well see in a week, week and a half where its at. Im very confident it will make me a better hitter.The plan is to have the 35-year-old Braun play in the Brewers home games rather than travel this spring. Hes expected to start in left field on Sunday.Its easier to play here than have to sit in a car sometimes for an hour and then get out and go play in games Edinson Volquez Jersey , said Braun, who has dealt with back problems in the past.NOTES: Jimmy Nelson, who is coming back from right shoulder surgery, will pitch one inning on Monday. Reliever Jeremy Jeffress, sidelined with right shoulder weakness, will continue his strengthening program over the weekend. Shaw said he has been seeing the ball well and took a slightly different approach in Fridays game. I just tried to be a little more aggressive on pitches in the zone, Shaw said. It feels good right now but there are still some things Im working on and trying to get better at. The way Tampa Bays Joey Wendle sees it, its really quite simple.Were having fun. Were playing relaxed, Wendle told a television audience after the Rays won their seventh game in a row a 5-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night at The Trop.With the series already won, the Rays, eight games above .500 for the first time this season, send ace Blake Snell to the mound to face former teammate Nathan Eovaldi in Sundays series finale.Article continues below ...Were playing just good fun baseball, fundamentally sound, Wendle said. Our pitching staff just night after night Kendall Graveman Jersey , its just been unbelievable.It seems like offensively we contribute one through nine somebodys coming up with the big hit every night.And now, as Wendle and manager Kevin Cash talking about newfound confidence, they turn to Snell, who is 3-0 in August after coming off the disabled list, 7-1 in his last eight starts and 15-5 with a 2.07 ERA this season. He has also handled the first-place Red Sox to the tune of 2-0 with an 0.95 ERA in three starts.Last weekend at Fenway Park, the Red Sox missed Snell, who pitched the finale of the series against the Yankees in the Bronx. The Red Sox won the first two games of that weekend series. The Rays won Sunday, ripped off four straight over the lowly Kansas City Royals and topped the Red Sox twice by a combined count of 15-4.The club record for consecutive wins is 12 in 2004.Our pitching weve been on a nice little run here and its been outstanding, Cash said. Any time you go up against that team, that lineup, and you limit them offensively, youre doing a lot of things correctly.The Red Sox, who saw their lead over the Yankees shrink to seven games (six in the loss column), have not been swept in a series all season. They have lost five of their last seven games. They have lost a series for the first time in their last 15.Theyve been throwing the ball well for a while Jose Canseco Jersey , Red Sox manager Alex Cora said of the Rays. They throw the ball WELL here were competing, but thats good stuff over there. They have a lot to do with it.Tomorrow, hey, weve got our hands full. Hes the guy hes been great against us. Well see how we react to it. Well go out there and compete. Weve been good on getaway days and day games you guys know all the stats so it would be a good day to put everything together and finish this series and strong and turn the page on this stadium (for the year).Eovaldi, acquired from the Rays in the deal that sent Jalen Beeks, winner of two of the Boston games in long relief, to St. Petersburg, started his Red Sox career with two scoreless outings but has had two bad starts of the last three. Overall, he is 5-5 with a 3.81 ERA this season.Eovaldi has never faced the Rays, but Carlos Gomez is 4-for-11 (.364) against him. Kevin Kiermaier, the only other Tampa player to face the right-hander, is 1-for-6 (.167), but the hit is a home run.Tampa Bays Tommy Pham returned after suffering a dislocated finger earlier in the week and hit a home run in the win.Besides Sandy Leon, who is 6-for-10 (.600) Jed Lowrie Jersey , the Red Sox have some ugly numbers against Snell in his young career. Mitch Moreland, who returned to the lineup Saturday after missing almost two full games with a knee bruise, is 0-for-12, Eduardo Nunez is 0-for-7, Jackie Bradley Jr. 1-for-11 (.091), Xander Bogaerts 2-for-15 (.133), J.D. Martinez 1-for-7 (.143) and Steve Pearce 2-for-9 (.222) against the left-hander.Martinez, who has flirted with the triple crown through much of the season, passed teammate Mookie Betts in batting average Saturday night his two hits leaving him at .337. Betts fell to .335 with an 0-for-4.
