A three-run third inning by the Cubs sent Chicago to victory over the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 on Friday at Wrigley Field.
Zach Davies gave up seven hits and four runs in four innings of work, and Brewers pitchers gave up 12 hits total in the game.
One bright spot was recent acquisition Drew Pomeranz, who tossed a scoreless eighth inning in a low-leverage situation.
The three-game series continues Saturday afternoon in Chicago at 1:20 p.m.
