Graveman continues to impress for A's

PEORIA, Ariz.— Kendall Graveman continued his impressive spring with 6 1-3 innings of three-hit ball, further staking his claim to a spot in the Athletics' rotation and leading Oakland to a 7-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

Graveman retired the first 14 batters he faced and got run support from Brett Lawrie's two-run home run in the third inning. Billy Butler added a solo home run in the seventh and Josh Phegley and Sam Fuld, who hit a pair of doubles, drove in runs in the sixth.

Graveman, 24, has allowed just one run and 10 hits in 21 1-3 innings this spring. The Brewers didn't get their first hit until Gerardo Parra's single with two out in the top of the fifth.

Brewers starter Michael Blazek, competing for a spot in the bullpen, appeared to hurt his cause with four walks in 3 2-3 innings. He allowed three runs and four hits.
