Late homers undo Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers silenced the bats of the Chicago Cubs for 17 innings, but saw a late lead slip away in the ninth inning in their 4-2 loss.


It was a bullpen game for the Brewers, using six pitchers to strike out 11 Cubs batters. It seemed Ryan Braun would be the offensive hero for a second straight night, giving the Brewers a 2-0 on a two-run homer in the fourth inning. Things stayed that way until the bottom of the ninth. With Josh Hader on the mound, Jason Heyward hit a three-run homer to give the Cubs their first runs and lead in the series. Ildemaro Vargas gave the Cubs an insurance run on the next at-bat with a solo shot. Craig Kimbrel closed the door for the Cubs with his second save of the season.


The rubber match between the Cubs and the Brewers is set for 1:10 p.m. Sunday.
