White Sox rough up Lohse in 9-0 win over Brewers

   PHOENIX (AP) -- Matt Davidson hit two doubles, drove in a pair of runs and scored and Josh Richmond hit a pinch-hit homer as the Chicago White Sox roughed up Kyle Lohse and the Milwaukee Brewers 9-0 on Monday.
 
   Lohse, scuffled in his third Cactus League start, allowing five runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings. He walked two and struck out two. Lohse's troubles came in the fourth, when he walked Adam Dunn to open the inning, then hit Dayan Viciedo with a pitch before walking Jordan Danks to load the bases.
 
   Davidson followed with a two-run double and scored on Hector Gimenez's sacrifice fly to left.
 
   "I thought he was good until he fell apart," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "He was a little frustrated and just got a little out of whack mechanically."
 
   White Sox starter Felipe Paulino had his best effort of the spring, striking out four while scattering three walks and two hits over five scoreless innings.
 
   "He looked good," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "He threw fairly well. I just thought he was getting ahead. When you feel like you can throw strikes and you throw that hard, it's a little bit easier on you."
 
   Richmond's homer came in the seventh off Brewers closer Jim Henderson.
 
   STARTING TIME
 
   Chicago: Hector Gimenez had struggled so far this spring, posting a 9.72 ERA in three Cactus League starts -- but  looked good in his fourth spring outing. He held Milwaukee scoreless over five innings.
 
   "I feel like every time coming here (we) see everything coming together right now," he said. "I think I improved today. Just to come in here, just throw five innings, that's what we're looking for. We're looking to go deep in the game. We're working on stuff today, it's a little rough sometimes, but in the end just to put those zeroes on the board is great.
 
   I feel great with how everything is coming together right now."
 
   Milwaukee: Lohse wasn't overly concerned about his rocky outing.
 
   "I just kind of got out of kilter for a minute and couldn't find everything I needed to but I got what I needed to," Lohse said. "It's spring . you don't want to go out there and (stink) but it doesn't mean as much when you're just trying to get your work in."
 
   STILL HURTING, STILL PITCHING
 
   Brewers right-hander Francisco Rodriguez still has a foot full of cactus spines, after stepping on one last week, but struck out two in a scoreless outing Monday and aims to be ready to go when the regular season gets underway March 31.
 
   FLOWERS GETS HIS CHANE
 
   Tyler Flowers will be behind the plate when the White Sox open the season in two weeks. Flowers was hitting .195 before undergoing shoulder surgery in September. His rehab complete, he's hitting .231 during Cactus League play and learned Monday that he was named the opening day starter by manager Robin Ventura.
 
   GARZA GETS WORK
 
   Brewers right-hander Matt Garza was scheduled to pitch a minor league game Monday at Maryvale Baseball Park. Garza was pulled with two outs in the second inning of his last start. He threw 63 pitches over his six-inning start, allowing three runs -- two earned -- on six hits with five strikeouts.
