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

Asian shares mixed as attacks in Egypt add to uncertainties

He broke through Friday with his first base hit of the season then collected three hits Saturday as the Chicago Cubs picked up a victory in Milwaukee. Including a first-inning flyout, Bryant had been 0-for-14 since the season started, the longest hitless streak to open a year by a reigning MVP since Ryne Sandberg went 0-for-13 in 1985. Chicago starter Kyle Kendricks allowed four runs on five hits including a pair of homers over six frames with Justin Grimm giving up two more runs in two innings of work.

The Milwaukee Brewers may need to do a little more roster juggling Saturday before continuing a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park.

An infield single by Hendricks put the Cubs ahead to stay 5-4 in the fifth off reliever Jhan Marinez (0-2). The right-hander got a 4-6-3 double play to end a threat in the 10th after the Cubs put runners at first and second with one out.

He told the newspaper: '(Heyward) got me very good, but good thing it wasn't the full elbow or knee'. Broxton wasn't in the starting lineup but entered the game as a defensive replacement.

Manager Craig Counsell and assistant athletic trainer Dave Yeager attended to RHP Jacob Barnes after he fielded a bunt single by Jon Jay in the eighth. The Cubs pounded out 17 hits and walked six times with Kris Bryant driving in three and scoring while the twosome of Wilson Contreras and Javier;Baez combined for four RBI's and three runs. That cleared a roster spot for utility man Nick Franklin, who was claimed off waivers earlier in the week from Tampa.




Two Chicago Cubs players collided during a Friday night game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Second baseman Javier Baez left the game in the sixth with a left eye contusion after colliding with outfielder Jason Heyward for a shallow fly that fell for a hit. "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". He's trying to bounce back from an 8-16 season past year.

Milwaukee optioned LHP Brent Suter to Triple-A Colorado Springs following the game.

Counsell said it was similar to what Braun experienced previous year, when he needed to take occasional days off, but wouldn't completely rule him out for the series finale. He did not allow an earned run over six innings against St. Louis in his season debut.

It was the first start of the season for Hendricks, the 2016 ERA champion.

Heath Hembree (0-1) walked two batters, and Mikie Mahtook followed with a tying double off Robby Scott.
