Schwarber, Zobrist homer in Cubs' 7-4 win over Brewers

Schwarber, Zobrist homer in Cubs' 7-4 win over Brewers

Hendricks' blemishes hardly were a cause for concern as the Cubs unleashed a 17-hit attack en route to an 11-6 victory over the Brewers before a predominantly pro-Cubs crowd of 43,080 at Miller Park. But Aguilar snared a line drive off the bat of Jason Heyward to start his second 3-6-3 double play of the day, and Hughes got Miguel Montero on a weak grounder to end the inning.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - After scuffling offensively over the first four games, the Chicago Cubs will return home to raise the World Series championship banner suddenly potent at the plate.

Hendricks (1-0), who led the majors with a 2.13 ERA a year ago, made his first start of the season and gave up a leadoff home run to Jonathan Villar. He responded, hitting.273 with 14 home runs, 59 RBI and 12 stolen bases.

He told the newspaper: '(Heyward) got me very good, but good thing it wasn't the full elbow or knee'.

NOTES: OF Ryan Braun was scratched from the Brewers' lineup with tightness in his lower back, manager Craig Counsell said before the game.

He started in right field the first two games in Milwaukee and said he expects Maddon to keep moving him and Baez around.

Cubs: Left-hander Brett Anderson had an effective debut for Chicago, allowing five hits and a run along with four strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. INF/OF Nick Franklin, who joined the team Friday after being claimed off waivers earlier in the week from Tampa Bay, started in left field for Milwaukee.

Maddon, who said he's trying to "balance" playing time for what amounts to four or five players across two or three positions, will have Zobrist back at second on Sunday, he said.


He scored the winning run in Milwaukee's 2-1,11-inning win over the Cubs on Friday night, racing home on a wild pitch. He's trying to bounce back from an 8-16 season a year ago. "I know Joe well enough to know that as time goes on sometimes he just plays the hot hand; sometimes he doesn't; sometimes there's no rhyme or reason to it a lot from our standpoint".

It fit so well because tonight the Brewers played a very tight game against the Cubs, seizing upon the opportunities they got on offense and riding the sparkling performance of Jimmy Nelson.
