Yesterday's Results

Cubs 4, Brewers 2

The slump continued yesterday for the Brewers, and this time, it threw them out of first place. Jimmy Nelson did his best to keep the team in the game, and did for the most part with a quality start. However, the offense was still quiet, managing only seven hits and a walk while striking out twelve times. Back-to-back home runs by Khris Davis and Gerardo Parra gave some hope, but it wasn't enough.
