In a final score that looks more like a score in a Bears-Packers game, the Brewers knocked off the Cubs 7-0 on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Milwaukee scored two runs in each of the final three innings and got a home run from Ryan Braun in the fourth. Gio Gonzalez and five relievers combined for the shutout.
The Brewers have now won seven games in a row and have moved into a virtual tie for first place in the National League Central division with the Cubs. One of the two teams will be alone in first place after Saturday's game in Chicago. Zach Davies will pitch against Cole Hamels. First pitch is at 1:20 PM.
