MILWAUKEE (AP) — Martin Maldonado singled over the Cubs’ drawn-in outfield with one out in the 11th inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers over Chicago 3-2 Sunday.

After a 7-18 start, the Brewers went 4-3 in Craig Counsell’s first week as manager since taking over for the fired Ron Roenicke. Milwaukee beat the Cubs for the second straight day.

Ryan Braun doubled off Jason Motte (1-1) to begin the 11th. Two intentional walks loaded the bases, and Maldonado’s deep drive sailed over right fielder Jorge Soler.

Maldonado also hit a solo homer in the seventh.

Michael Blazek (3-0) pitched a perfect top of the 11th, finishing with strikeouts of Anthony Rizzo and pinch-hitting pitcher Travis Wood.
