Brewers cede lead late again

The Chicago White Sox came back in the late innings Tuesday for a second consecutive night to knock off the Milwaukee Brewers. The visitors got two runs in the sixth and another in the seventh to erase a 2-0 deficit. Brewers starter Brad Woodruff received a no-decision. He had six strikeouts in six innings with the only blemish being a two-run shot given up to White Sox left fielder Eloy Jimenez. The Brew Crew scored their runs on a two-run homer in the fifth off the bat of right fielder Ben Gamel.

Manager Craig Counsell says right now it’s just a waiting until last year’s National League MVP Christian Yelich can break out of his slump. He’s currently 3-34 on the year, a .088 average, with only one home run. At 3-5, the Brewers are in fourth place in the NL Central Division.
