Brewers drop series finale to Cubs

It took a seven RBI day from Kyle Schwarber for the Chicago Cubs to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers in an 11-4 victory Sunday afternoon at Miller Park.

 

Scwarber hit a grand slam in the second inning and a three-run homer in the fourth inning to stake the rival Cubs to a seven-run lead. Both starting pitchers struggled to even get five innings as Zach Davies was chased after five innings and Jose Quintana left just before that. He was pulled after the Brewers cut the lead to 7-3 thanks to a Manny Pina single, a sacrifice fly by Lorenzo Cain, and a double by Christian Yelich. The Brewers gave the three runs right back after Victor Caratini homered with a pair on to make it a 10-3 margin. A double by Ryan Braun and a groundout by Wilson Contreas capped off the scoring for both teams.

 

The weekend series left the Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals tied for first place and the Brewers sitting just one game back. The Brewers will travel on their day off to Oakland to face the Athletics on Tuesday night.
