Estrada strong, Segura hurt, Brewers top Cubs 5-3Submitted: 04/26/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - 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.

The formal open enrollment window closed last week. About 80 students living in the district will likely attend school somewhere else next school year. Fewer than half of that number will come to Phillips by choice.

With how state funding is calculated, Phillips will lose about $6,600 per student that leaves.

PHILLIPS - Many times, a cat or dog in the home makes domestic violence situations even more complicated. The abuser may hurt the animal, or the victim might be reluctant to get out of the home while leaving the animal behind.

TimeOut of Price County serves victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. Its workers hear story after story of innocent pets being involved in abusive situations.

"(Victims say,) 'I see this happening to my pet constantly. My abuser has a bad day or we get into an argument and they take it out on my pet. I fear for my safety, I fear for my pet's safety,'" said Becky Steinbach, a Sexual Assault Program Coordinator at TimeOut in Phillips.
