CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Marisnick homered and matched a career high with five RBIs, and the Chicago Cubs pounded the Milwaukee Brewers 15-2 for their fourth straight victory.
Anthony Rizzo, Javier Báez and Willson Contreras also connected for Chicago, which was coming off a three-game sweep of the New York Mets.
Nico Hoerner had three hits in his first start of the season.
Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks pitched six innings of two-run ball in his first win of the season.
Milwaukee had won three in a row.
Kolten Wong and Billy McKinney hit consecutive homers in the sixth, but that was it for the Brewers' offense.
