Brewers Snap Five Game Skid

CHICAGO (AP) - Marco Estrada pitched seven effective innings and doubled home a run yesterday, helping the Milwaukee Brewers stop a five-game slide with a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs in the first game of the season at Wrigley Field.

With a strong wind blowing out at the start of the game - a rare sight for an April date at the iconic neighborhood ballpark - Estrada allowed two runs and five hits while bouncing back from a lackluster season debut against Colorado. The right-hander also drove in Alex Gonzalez with a drive into the gap in right-center during Milwaukee's two-run seventh.

Norichika Aoki collected three more hits and Ryan Braun had a successful return to the lineup as the Brewers won for the first time since opening day.
