CHICAGO — Willson Contreras, Ian Happ and Anthony Rizzo went yard for the Chicago Cubs (2-1) on Sunday, leading the North Siders to a 9-1 triumph versus the rival Milwaukee Brewers (1-2). On an afternoon that Tyler Chatwood started on the bump for the Cubs and struck out eight, the Cubs won comfortably at Wrigley Field to take two of three from the Brew Crew.
In addition the aforementioned home runs, the Cubs benefited from several spectacular defensive plays, including Happ making a phenomenal catch while colliding with the wall in center field. Not to be outdone, Albert Almora Jr., who replaced Happ in center field late in the game, secured a snag of his own in the ivy, pulling off a superb leaping grab in the final inning.
