Yesterday's Results

Cubs 9, Brewers 2

Home runs have hurt the Brewers pitching staff this season, and they were in full effect on Thursday afternoon. The Cubs hit five home runs to account for seven of their nine runs. The Brewers did manage nine hits and had a four stolen base inning, but couldn't turn that into much on the scoreboard.
