Cubs Crush Brewers

(Chicago, IL) — Kris Bryant hit two of Chicago’s four home runs in the Cubs’ 13-6 home rout of the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday at Wrigley Field. Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo also homered, as the Brewers went oh for eleven with runners in scoring position and gave up their most runs in a game this season, while ending a four game winning streak. The Cubs scored in every inning but the second as they remained in third place in the National League Central, two games behind first place Milwaukee — and Travis Shaw highlighted a five run ninth for the Crew with a two run blast off Dylan Floro. Jake Arietta got the win, fanning six in six innings while giving up one run to improve to 5-3 — while Brewers’ starter Chase Anderson surrendered six runs in four frames to drop to 2-1. Ryan Braun returned from a calf injury and went oh for five with an R-B-I, and Brewers’ slugger Eric Thames left in the fifth inning with a leg cramp, after missing four games last week with strep throat.
