Schwarber, Cubs rally past Brewers to snap 4-game skid

Some of the home run production is dependent on this subjective fact.

Chicago pounded out 14 hits - including homers from Kyle Schwarber and Miguel Montero - while rallying to a 9-7 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers and snap a four-game losing streak. Chicago is 9-3 in Hendricks' last 12 division starts and 5-0 in their last 5 games against a left-handed starter while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall. He blew a save in that game, too. The start of Wednesday's game was delayed 55 minutes because of rain.

You can catch the game on MyINDY-TV at 2:20 p.m. Pregame begins at 2 p.m. We are a home run-hitting team.

It took the Brewers three batters to break through against Lackey in the first inning. More concerning is the walks, because command and control and location are Kyle's game.

The surging Rockies had lost seven straight games at Dodger Stadium since they last won there last season June 8. It's just that Pittsburgh came from behind twice and beat us.

Triggs (3-0) allowed three hits and two unearned runs in six innings.

Mike Montgomery, Pedro Strop, Koji Uehara and Wade Davis (2-0) combined for four scoreless innings, allowing two hits. Before Bruce came to the plate, Velasquez allowed a two-out single to Asdrubal Cabrera and a walk to Yoenis Cespedes.

The final reason that this loss was tough to swallow was that the Phils got a pretty good start from Vince Velasquez, the hard-throwing, electric-armed right-hander who could really help this rebuild if he can harness his potential and develop into a consistent contributor. When his curveball is on it can be devastating. I tried to get ahead of the guys and put them away.

Chicago trailed 4-1 before Willson Contreras' RBI single in the sixth off Carlos Torres. Travis Shaw did the most damage for the Brewers, going 3 for 4 with a home run and a pair of doubles in addition to 3 RBI.

Thames lined a one-out double into the right field corner off Anderson and reached third as Ryan Braun followed with a single to right.

The Cubs, though, worked their way back, and it was 4-4 when Addison Russell stepped in with two on and two out in the bottom of the ninth.

#Cubs resiliency is engraved on their rings.

And the only series they've lost so far was the weekend sweep by the Pirates that involved blown leads in all three games - while Edwards, their best reliever, was on bereavement leave.

Amid reports that the team has asked everyone in the organization to sign an agreement saying they would sell the rings back to the Cubs for $1 instead of selling them elsewhere for a profit, a team spokesman clarified the situation.
