Maldonado's single in 11th lifts Brewers over Cubs
MILWAUKEE (AP) - -
Martin Maldonado singled over the Cubs' drawn-in outfield with one out in the 11th inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers over Chicago 3-2 Sunday. After a 7-18 start, the Brewers went 4-3 in Craig Counsell's first week as manager since taking over for the fired Ron Roenicke. Milwaukee beat the Cubs for the second straight day.
Ryan Braun doubled off Jason Motte (1-1) to begin the 11th. Two intentional walks loaded the bases, and Maldonado's deep drive sailed over right fielder Jorge Soler.
Maldonado also hit a solo homer in the seventh.
Michael Blazek (3-0) pitched a perfect top of the 11th, finishing with strikeouts of Anthony Rizzo and pinch-hitting pitcher Travis Wood.
