Must be something about playing on Mondays.  The Milwaukee Brewers ended a five game losing streak and spoiled the Chicago Cubs home opener at Wrigley Field in the process with a 7-4 victory Monday afternoon.    On a sunny but windy day, the Brewers jumped on Cubs starter Edwin Jackson with four runs in the first inning.  Martin Maldanado delivered the big blow, a wind aided fly into the right field corner for a three run double.  Ryan Braun drove home a run in the second and finished three for four after missing three games with a neck injury.  Nori Aoki also collected three hits.   Marco Estrada gave the Brewers their first seven inning start of the year, allowing a two run homer to Wellington Castillo but he struck out six for the win.  Brandon Kintzler gave up three straight hits and a couple of runs in the bottom of the ninth and Jim Henderson, not John Axford came on to close.  With the bases loaded and the wind now blowing in, Henderson gave up a long fly to right that probably would have been a grand slam home run in the 8th, but Nori Aoki caught it at the front of the warning track for the final out.  Milwaukee (2-5) will send Wily Peralta against Travis Wood in game two of the series Tuesday night.
