Schafer, Brewers down Cubs

Final Score: Milwaukee 5, Chicago 3

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Logan Schafer's triple highlighted a four-run fourth inning as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-3 in the second game of a three-game set.

After a Jonathan Lucroy single and Aramis Ramirez walk, Scooter Gennett squeezed a grounder past shortstop Starlin Castro to plate Lucroy. Caleb Gindl worked a walk before Schafer stroked a line drive out to left-center field and reached third after clearing the bases.

Lucroy had two hits while Johnny Hellweg (1-3) earned his first win of the season. The right-hander surrendered three runs on four hits across six innings for the Brewers, who have won two of their last three.

Luis Valbuena brought in two runs with a home run in the second. Jake Arrieta (2-2) lasted five innings and gave up four runs and three walks for the Cubs, who have dropped three of their last five.
