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

Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber were all over the place in an 11-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers 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.

Ryan Braun provided most of Milwaukee's offense with a three-run home run in the third inning off Jake Arrieta (2-0).

To beat the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs, the Milwaukee Brewers needed a little bit of everything Friday night, and they got it.

Pirates 5, Braves 4: David Freese and Francisco Cervelli hit back-to-back home runs, and Pittsburgh won its home opener in snow flurries over Atlanta. "That was really good, so hopefully we can kind of turn the page on this whole opening week and just play our game".

Saturday will mark Milone's first career outing against the Cubs, who will be looking to bounce back after a tough loss Friday night.

"It was a fun game, for sure", Milwaukee manage Craig Counsell said.

The Brewers, meanwhile, didn't have a hit and had just one base runner from Braun's homer until Domingo Santana homered off Hector Rondon with two outs in the ninth.

Maddon said Baez will have a regularly scheduled off day Sunday. Recalled on Tuesday, he pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings before being hit for four runs in his inning of work Saturday, which raised his ERA to 10.80.

Baez, who has started four games at second, will sit as the Cubs' lineup provides a few tweaks.

This despite starting every postseason game at second previous year, earning national celebrity on that stage, then repeating his flashy success during the World Baseball Classic this spring.

"As a team, I think that was a great display of some weak hits", said Bryant, noting infield rollers and bloop hits the Cubs had. He did not allow an earned run over six innings against St. Louis in his season debut.

Counsell said it was similar to what Braun experienced a year ago, when he needed to take occasional days off, but wouldn't completely rule him out for the series finale.
