MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Ryan Braun belted his first Miller Park homer in over a year, as the Milwaukee Brewers crushed the Chicago Cubs 11-5 Friday night.  Braun's blast off Travis Wood gave the Crew a 2-0 lead in the first inning.  They scored five in that frame and never looked back.  The Brewers churned out 16 hits, tying a team-record with their ninth straight game with ten hits or more.  They previously achieved that feat in 1983 and 2011.  Braun went 3 for 5 with three R-B-I's and two runs scored.  He moved into sole possession of fourth place on the Brewers' all-time R-B-I list with 707.  Rickie Weeks, Jean Segura, and Martin Maldonado also had three hits apiece.  Carlos Gomez extended his hitting streak to ten games.  Marco Estrada got the win, to improve to 5-2.  He struck out five in six innings, giving up three runs on six hits.  Wood was shelled for seven runs on 10 hits in two-and-two-thirds' frames, ending a four-game winning streak.  He's now 5-5 overall.  The Cubs ended a 22-inning scoreless streak when Emilio Bonifacio had a run-scoring base hit in the third.  The Crew and the Cubs will play each other again this afternoon at Miller Park.  Right-hander Wily Peralta starts against Chicago right-hander Jason Hammel.  Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 2:35.
