Brewers come back from seven down, stun Cubs

Down seven runs in the first inning didn't deter the Milwaukee Brewers from playing it out, eventually winning the game 15-7 over the Chicago Cubs.


Starting pitcher Aaron Ashby did not make it out of the first inning after surrendering three RBI hits and scores on a fielder's choice and a wild pitch. The Brewers took advantage of an erratic Jake Arrieta, putting up a single tally in the first inning and forcing him out of the game in the second inning. It was 7-5 after two innings thanks to Luis Urias homer and an Arrieta throwing error that brought home a pair of runs. 


An eight-run fourth inning turned things around for the Brewers with Jace Peterson and Jackie Bradley Jr. hitting RBI singles and Luis Urias scoring on a hit by pitch. Willy Adames dealt the big blow with a grand slam to make it 14-7. It was the first time two different teams led by as many as seven runs in the first four innings. Urias finished things off with a solo shot in the sixth inning. Wednesday marked the second time the Brewers dealt a large loss to a team after falling behind by seven runs. It eventually beat the Los Angeles Angels 20-7 in a game held in 1990.


The Brewers have now won eight games in a row and are firmly in the driver's seat in the NL Central with a six-game lead over the Cubs. The Brewers now head to Pittsburgh for a series against the last place Pirates.
