Braun leads Brewers to 11-5 win over Cubs

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.
