This Weekend's Results

Cubs 4, Brewers 2

Matt Garza didn't have his best day on Saturday. The Cubs scored four runs off of him in six innings, with all of the runs coming on home runs. Anthony Rizzo hit a three-run shot in the third, and Kyle Schwarber also had a solo home run. The Brewers managed just two runs on five hits, one scoring on a Khris Davis RBI single and the other no a Jean Segura RBI groundout.

Cubs 4, Brewers 3

Kyle Lohse was himself yesterday afternoon, which means it was another rough start. He allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings, with the Cubs scoring single runs in the first, second, fourth, and fifth innings. The Brewers got a run in the second on a RBI groundout, but didn't do much else until the ninth inning. The Brewers got two runners to start the inning, and then RBI hits from Elian Herrera and Hernan Perez made it 4-3. However, that was all the Brewers could do.
