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.

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.
