MILWAUKEE (AP) — Chris Coghlan hit a leadoff homer in the first and Javier Baez had his second career three-hit game, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
The Brewers lost for the 24th time in 34 games on a day the team said it would retire uniform No. 1 to honor retiring commissioner Bud Selig, who bought the Seattle Pilots out of bankruptcy and moved them to Milwaukee in 1970.
Coghlan homered on Jimmy Nelson’s second pitch of the game. He also doubled in the third and scored three times.
