Brews Bruise Cubs
The Cubs fell further to the cellar floor in the NL Central, and the Brewers showed no mercy while the Cubs were on the losing side of a 3-1 ball game on Sunday.
Scott Baker made a comeback from TJ surgery, and showed what rehab is all about when, you work hard, and do it right. He allowed just 2 hits within 5 innings but, to no avail as Milwaukee hit on the Cubs Bullpen.
The Relievers allowed 6 hits, and the 3 earned runs for the Brewers to bring it to the win column.
On the hitting side, Junior Lake went 2 for 3, including another quad-pack, maintaining a .300 BA in his MLB premiere season. Valbuena got the only other Cubs hit.
