CHICAGO — After missing a start the night before due to a knee contusion, Kyle Schwarber returned to the starting lineup with a vengeance on Thursday. Swinging at the first pitch of his first at-bat, Schwarber went deep in the bottom of the second.

Skying an opposite-field "Schwarbomb," the Chicago Cubs slugger hammered a sinker thrown by Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brett Anderson to the opposite field. The 373-footer to left at Wrigley Field marked Schwarber's third dinger of the year. Two of his three round-trippers have come against Brewers left-handers.
