Brewers lose to Cubs in another slugfest

The Brewers six-game winning streak and the Cubs six-game losing streak both ended on Friday night at Miller Park. A night after 23 total runs were scored in a Brewers win, there were 22 combined runs in a Cubs victory. The final score was 14-8. Lorenzo Cain led off the game in the bottom of the first with a home run. He would later double in a run as well.


However, the major star of the night was the Cubs Jason Heyward who went 3-3 with two homers, two walks and two stolen bases.


Ryan Braun did his best to keep the Brewers in the game with a three-run shot in the seventh to cut the Cubs lead to 7-5. The Cubs then put the game away in the very next half-inning by putting up seven on the board.


Eric Thames would add a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth to cap the scoring.


Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes struggled in five innings of work allowing seven runs. He was the losing pitcher. Alex Wilson came in the game in the 8th and only recorded one out and allowed six earned runs. Cole Hamels started for the Cubs and was the winning pitcher going six innings and allowing only two runs.


The two division rivals will play the rubber match of the series on Sunday afternoon at 1:10.
