(Chicago) -- Marco Estrada walked out to warm up and saw the wind blowing straight out at Wrigley Field, a rare sight for an April date at the iconic neighborhood ballpark.
It was an unfortunate development for the right-hander, but he made it work in a big way for the Milwaukee Brewers.
Estrada pitched seven effective innings and doubled home a run Monday, helping the Brewers stop a five-game slide with a 7-4 victory over Chicago in the first game of the season at the Cubs' longtime home.
Cincinnati 13, St. Louis 4
(St. Louis) -- Cincinnati's Shin-Soo Choo, centerfielder, made amends for two botched fly balls, drawing a leadoff walk in a nine-run ninth inning and later delivering a three-run double as the Reds spoiled the St. Louis Cardinals' home opener with a 13-4 victory on Monday.
Mitchell Boggs (0-1), the stand-in closer for St. Louis, yielded six runs while getting only one out. Only a few thousand fans remained of the largest regular-season crowd of 47,375 for the bottom of the ninth in 8-year-old Busch Stadium history.
