The Milwaukee Brewers defense collapsed as the Cubs took the series with a 7-2 win at Miller Park Thursday. A pair of third inning errors helped springboard the “loveable losers” to their first series victory at Miller Park in eight tries.
The Brewers trailed 6-0 after three innings. Pitcher Wily Peralta took the loss but certainly did not get any help from his defense.
Milwaukee was led offensively by Juan Francisco who hit a solo home run in the eighth inning. Logan Schafer hit an RBI double in the sixth inning for Milwaukee's first run.
Reports surfaced after the game that Milwaukee centerfielder Carlos Gomez may return to the starting lineup after injuring his arm last Sunday.
