Local Sports

After rain delayed their Wisconsin Timber Rattlers debut Thursday, Ryan Braun and Jonathan Villar competed their first rehab starts with the Brewers Low Single-A affiliate Friday night.

Villar was 2-for-2 with a single, double, walk and a run scored, while Braun finished 1-for-3 with a run scored in game one of a double-header with Kane County.  

Wisconsin lost game one 4-3.

Villar came back to play in game two, while Braun was scheduled to take the game off.

Both are expected to play at least a half of a game Saturday, and the entire game Sunday if all goes according to plan.
