Cubs 6 Brewers 4
Box score. It’s official… Alfonso is back. A double in the first, and a home run in the third, and a stolen base. The Cubs win something of a wild one in Milwaukee, and are now two up on the Brewers, and four on the Cardinals.
Lilly was solid through 5, but then looked all too Lilly-esque in the 6th, giving up back-to-back homers to Hardy and Braun, and then a double to Hart, surrendering the lead.
Luckily, the Cubs managed to retake the lead on a Weeks throwing error in the 7th, and scored again on a Lee double and DeRosa infield single in the 9th.
The Cubs have three more remaining in this important series with the Brewers. Tomorrow’s game is again at 7:05 CT, on WGN.
