Another late homer proved to be the decisive blow in the Milwaukee Brewers' 4-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs Sunday night.
The Cubs struck first on another soggy day at Wrigley Field with Wilson Contreas knocking in the first run on a groundout in the game's opening inning. Jesus Aguilar tied it up on an RBI single in the fourth inning to tie the game at 1-1. Javier Baez drove in what turned out to be the difference an inning later with an RBI double that drove in Kris Bryant. The Cubs' first baseman put the game out of reach with a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh.
Starting pitching proved to be masterful for a third straight game for the Brewers, with Jhoulys Chacin taking the hard-luck loss despite giving up just one earned run. Brewers pitching gave up just six runs in 33 innings of work. The Brewers take their road show to Philadelphia next for a series against the Phillies.
