Caratini, Brewers salvage series split from Cubs

Victor Caratini continued the torment of his former team as the Milwaukee Brewers survived a rally to beat the Chicago Cubs Thursday afternoon 4-3.


Cody Bellinger was a one-man wrecking crew for the Cubs, who continued his post-injured list spark with an RBI double to open the scoring in the fourth inning and a homer in the sixth inning that got the North Siders to within a run after the Brewers beat up on All-Star pitcher Marcus Stroman. The Brewers got an RBI single from Joey Wiemer to tie the game before Christian Yelich went yard to make it 4-3 in the fifth inning. After the Brewers tacked on a run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, Yan Gomes hit a game-tying homer to make it 5-5 heading into the bottom of the eighth. The theme of poor bullpen execution continued to the benefit of the Brewers as Caratini hit a solo shot to give the Brewers a one-run advantage before closing the door in the ninth.


The Brewers will stick around town to try to knock the Cincinnati Reds off the top pedestal in the NL Central beginning Friday night at 7:10 p.m.
