Cubs’ first baseman Jake Fox’s 3-run homer off Seth McClung paced the Northsiders to their second Cactus League win.
Yovani Gallardo got the start, and allowed 2 walks in just an inning.
Brewers’ skipper Ken Macha, drawing a southpaw starter for the second day in a row, opted to rest Prince Fielder and have J.J. Hardy bat third, with Braun batting clean-up; the pair went 3-for-5 on the day, driving in a pair in their new slots. Chris Duffy went 2-for-4, including a triple. Mike Cameron and Mike Rivera each hit homers.
