By JAY COHEN AP Baseball Writer

CHICAGO (AP) — Jesse Winker had two hits and three RBIs, including a key two-run single in Milwaukee's five-run sixth inning, and the Brewers beat Jameson Taillon and the Chicago Cubs 9-5.

Christian Yelich, Garrett Mitchell and Brice Turang also had two hits apiece — part of a 13-hit attack for Milwaukee.

Winker was acquired in a December trade with Seattle.

He had a pinch-hit RBI single in the eighth inning of Milwaukee's 3-1 win on Saturday.

Taillon was charged with three runs and seven hits in four innings in his Chicago debut.

The 6-foot-5 right-hander signed a four-year contract in free agency.
