Yesterday's Results

Cubs 6, Brewers 2

We had some hope for a few innings last night as the Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning. However, the Cubs took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second, expanded it to 6-1 in the third, and took control for the rest of the game. The Brewers did make it interesting in the sixth, scoring a run and loading the bases with one out, but couldn't do anything else as they left the bases loaded.
