Brewers win their second series against the Cubs in a week
The Milwaukee Brewers have won their second series of the year both to the Chicago Cubs. Craig Counsell, the Brewers manager has led the team to a 4-3 record after Ron Roenicke’s absence.
To open up the series, the Cubs hit four homeruns in a 7-6 victory over the Brewers. The four Chicago batters to go yard were Dexter Fowler, Anthony Rizzo, Jorge Soler, and Starlin Castro. Milwaukee’s pitching staff is allowing the most homeruns in the Major Leagues.
Kris Bryant hit a ninth-inning single to give the Cubs a 7-3 lead at the time. In the Brewers turn in the ninth Ryan Braun hit a three-run blast off of Cub closer Hector Rondon. If the Brew Crew’s sloppy defense hadn’t shown they could’ve won the ball game.
Milwaukee’s left-fielder, Khris Davis had four hits, a homer, and a triple away from the cycle.
Cub pitcher Jason Hammell advanced to 6-0 against the Brewers life time and is 4-0 at Miller Park. Hammel pitched seven innings for Chicago.
The Brewers demolished the Chicago Cubs 12-4 Saturday evening. Jason Rogers, Gerrardo Parra, and Jean Segura homered for the Crew. Kris Bryant hit his first career homerun off of Kyle Lohse.
Martin Maldonado hit a walk-off single for the Brewers Sunday on Mother’s Day. Maldonado and Elian Herrera hit back-to-back jack in the seventh inning for the Brew Crew. They tied the ballgame and then took the lead.
