6/25 Brewers 9, Cubs 3
Rickie Weeks belted a two-run homer, a solo shot, and and RBI double, and Juan Francisco added a solo homer to power the Brewers to a 9-3 victory over Edwin Jackson and the Cubs Tuesday night. Jackson served up six runs over 4 2/3 innings, his third outing in the last 10 in which he failed to finish the fifth.
Francisco got things started with his home run with one out in the second off a 3-1 pitch. But Jackson singled to open the third, and one out later, Darwin Barney singled to set up Nate Schierholtz’s home run, his 11th, and go-ahead 3-1.
Francisco walked to lead off the fifth and scored on Weeks’ double. One out later, Francisco scored on Caleb Gindl’s single, his first Major League RBI, to tie the game at 3. Gindl moved up on Kyle Lohse’s sacrifice, Norichika Aoki then walked and Segura hit a go-ahead RBI double. It was Segura’s 100th hit of the season, most in the National League.
Lucroy followed with a two-run single to open a 6-3 lead, and chase Jackson. Weeks belted a two-run home run off Hector Rondon in the sixth, and added a solo shot off Shawn Camp in the eighth.
The Cubs went 1-for-10 with RISP.
