Jett Bandy homered in the Milwaukee ninth. Scherzer (1-0) allowed two runs and four hits, striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings. Maddon had Carl Edwards, Jr., Pedro Strop, and Wade Davis all sitting in the bullpen, but didn't even have them warming up (shrugs helplessly). "They learn off their first at-bats". "They beat us at our own game". That cleared a roster spot for utility man Nick Franklin, who was claimed off waivers earlier in the week from Tampa.

The Cubs said Baez was not in the concussion protocol. "He said he was all right, but I didn't feel good about it", Maddon said after the Cubs lost 2-1 in 11 innings. "I don't think I gave up a hit after that". "It puts the pitcher at ease and gets us in that mode of swinging the bat and taking some good pitches, and we did that today".
Heyward wasn't in the lineup, but was available.
"A lot of the misses came (second time through the order) when he fell behind in the count a whole bunch", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. Just enough that he needed to back off a little bit.
In five games, Braun is batting.250 with a homer. Montgomery's 0-2 offering, though, skipped past Montero to the backstop, allowing Braun to score easily, giving the Brewers the victory.
Milwaukee optioned LHP Brent Suter to Triple-A Colorado Springs following the game. Brewers starter Tommy Milone was charged with four runs on nine hits through four innings with Jhan Marinez and Brent Suter allowing four runs apiece on eight hits and four free passes over a combined four frames.
