MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jeff Bianchi had a two-run single, and Marco Estrada threw 7 2/3 strong innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Chicago Cubs 5-3 on Saturday night.

Bianchi went 2 for 4, entering the game as a pinch-hitter in the first for Jean Segura, who was hit in the head in the dugout by a bat.

A TV replay showed the All-Star getting hit on the right side of the head during a warmup swing by teammate Ryan Braun, who was facing the field on the top steps of the dugout while Segura was coming up behind him.

Bianchi drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the second off Cubs starter Travis Wood (1-3).

Estrada (2-1) had nine strikeouts.

Francisco Rodriguez tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 11th save.
