Maldonado's roller-coaster day ends with game winner

Martin Maldonado's bases-loaded hit in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Brewers a 3-2 win over the Cubs Sunday, giving Milwaukee two wins in the three game series with their I-94 rivals.

Maldonado's game-winner helped redeem an earlier mistake that allowed the Cubs to tie the game. Anthony Rizzo belted a ball over Ryan Braun's head in the eighth inning, but the relay throw reached home before Dexter Fowler, who was trying to score the tying run. Maldonado dropped the ball, though, allowing Fowler to tie the game.

Martin had two other memorable moments on the day, both positives. In his first at-bat, the Brewers catcher laid down a surprise bunt and beat the throw to first base. Umpires originally called Maldonado out, but reversed their decision after reviewing the play. And in the seventh, Maldonado blasted a 402 foot home run into the left field seats to tie the game at one a piece - an inning after Miguel Montero's solo blast gave the Cubs their first run of the afternoon.

Elian Herrera also homered for the Brewers, who finish Craig Counsell's first week as manager with a winning record.
