Maybe interleague play isn't so bad after all.
Rich Harden was bad against the Brewers as a Cub last year, and the Brewers picked up right where they left off against him tonight, connecting for four home runs that accounted for all six of their runs in the game.
Meanwhile, Chris Narveson pitched the longest game of his career and his best game of the season tonight, allowing two runs on six hits in seven innings, striking out four and walking two. He needed just 91 pitches to get through seven innings. Kameron Loe followed him to the mound and pitched two scoreless innings to close it out.
At the plate power was the theme of the day, headlined by Corey Hart's NL leading 17th home run, his third in four games and his 14th in his last 26 games. Overall, Hart went 2-for-3 with a walk and scored twice.
With the win, the Brewers have won 4 of 5 and clinched a split for the homestand. With a win tomorrow or Sunday, they'd have just their second winning homestand of the season.
