Yelich leads Brewers to win over Cubs

Milwaukee Brewers

Furthermore, the Brewers earned a triumph in the 19-game season series with the Cubs, as they went 10-9 versus the North Siders. Brent Suter pitched a scoreless two innings to get the win.

Cubs shortstop Addison Russell was hit in the face by a 94 miles per hour fastball from Houser.

Staked to a 3-1 lead, Lester (12-10) allowed RBI hits to Ryan Braun and Hernan Perez sooner than Austin delivered his fourth pinch homer this season. Eric Thames also went yard for Milwaukee.

At the moment, the Cubs have the second Wild Card spot, and their margin of error is slipping day by day.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon has opted to flip Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks in his rotation for the series finale, moving Lester (12-9, 4.19 ERA) up and pushing Hendricks back to start their series against San Diego on Monday. Russell was able to temporarily remain in the game after the fastball, which seemed to graze Russell's batting helmet before making contact with Russell's head, once he was examined by trainers but was pulled following the conclusion of the half-inning. Two straight doubles ensued, with Lester slapping an RBI 2-bagger down the right-field line to set up an RBI double by Ben Zobrist.

Christian Yelich might need a passport after Saturday's game.

Lester came unglued in the bottom of the fourth, with the Brew Crew scoring five runs on four hits and one walk. David Bote might fill in for Russell if he misses time. Catcher Willson Contreras caught Shrimp as he grew to become and buckled over. A 64-2d evaluate confirmed that Yelich had been hit.

Yu Darvish threw five innings and allowed three hits to Brewers batters while striking out seven. Each of the first 29 players selected that year have now appeared in a major league game. Former Brewer Brandon Kintzler was charged with the loss for the Cubs after yielding the game-winning hit. Yelich will likely continue to battle Alonso and Bellinger for an NL-best home run record as the last month of the regular season unfolds, as the three have been neck-and-neck for quite some time.
