Braun, Brewers pound Cubs
MILWAUKEE – Ryan Braun homered to highlight a five-run first inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cubs, 11-5, Friday night.
Braun had three hits and three RBIs for Milwaukee, which has won 25 of its last 31 games against the Cubs.
Travis Wood (5-5) turned in his shortest outing of the season when he lasted only 22/3 innings. He gave up 10 hits and seven earned runs for the Cubs (19-33), who have the worst record in the majors.
The Cubs, shut out in their past two games at San Francisco, ended its scoreless streak at 22 innings.
