Carlos Gomez broke a scoreless tie in the ninth inning with an RBI single and Jeff Bianchi added a two-run double to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the Chicago Cubs 5-0 on Monday night.
The Brewers, sitting in last place in the NL Central, won for the third time in eight games and ended the Cubs' winning streak at three games.
Brewers reliever Brandon Kintzler (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory.
Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (1-1) gave up the single to Gomez on an 0-2 pitch and Jean Segura easily scored from second to give the Brewers a 1-0 lead. With one out and the bases loaded, Bianchi gave the Brewers insurance with a double to right to score two more runs and Rickie Weeks also added a two-run double as Milwaukee batted around in the ninth.
On a cool July night, the Cubs opened an eight-game homestand with a little different look. Left fielder Alfonso Soriano and pitcher Matt Garza were both traded while the Cubs were on a 10-game road trip as team president T...

The Brewers know they face a PR disaster regarding the Ryan Braun PED suspension, but in August, they'll begin to try and make things right with the Milwaukee faithful.
Have we mentioned that disgraced Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun's fiance is smokeshow lingerie model Larisa Fraser? Here are photos of her.
If all had gone according to plan for the Milwaukee Brewers this season, Logan Schafer would be a fourth outfielder fighting to stay ready on the bench, while Caleb Gindl and Khris Davis would be playing in Triple-A.
But nothing has gone according to plan for the Brewers this season. Even backup plans have found a way to go awry.
There are very few positives in the season-ending...
In the days following the announcement of Ryan Braun's season-ending suspension, Milwaukee Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio made it clear he was going to give back to the fans in what has turned into a long season.
The first part of a series of special fan appreciation initiatives was announced Monday, as the Brewers will give all fans attending any of the 12 home games...
The Milwaukee Brewers are having a rough go of it this season.
The team are bottom-dwellers in the NL Central and are dealing with one of the biggest performance-enhancing drug scandals of the year. Outfielder Ryan Braun is serving a 65-game suspension from Major League Baseball for violating the league’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program after initially lying to his...
I just checked in with Brewers general manager Doug Melvin who is not in Chicago preparing for today's split doubleheader with the Cubs. Instead he's at Miller Park in the trade "war room" where things seem very quiet leading up to the Wednesday 3 p.m. non-waiver deadline.
Because right-hander Kyle Lohse has been pitching so well for so long I asked Melvin if he...
Tyler Thornburg threw the ball well enough to earn another start in the near future. Unfortunately, the Milwaukee Brewers likely will need a starter five days from now due to an injury.
While two comeback victories over the Chicago Cubs paced Milwaukee to its first doubleheader sweep since 2010, the Brewers may have lost right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the process.
The Milwaukee Brewers have decided to show their fans a little love with an unusually generous promotion.
Fans who attend a Brewers home game in August will receive a $10 voucher good for food, drinks, merchandise and game tickets. Team owner Mark Attanasio said Monday ''this has been a challenging season for all of us'' but the fan support has not wavered.
In what has turned into a lost season, the Milwaukee Brewers have lost their fair share of games in which they've played poorly.
Those are the losses that keep manager Ron Roenicke awake at night. Sure, losing is welcomed by nobody inside Milwaukee's clubhouse, but losses like Sunday's in Colorado are at least easier to swallow.
Though Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies...
With Ryan Braun suspended for the remainder of the season, the Milwaukee Brewers have decidedly less pop in lineup. That will change when Aramis Ramirez returns from the DL. Unfortunately, the progress he is making in his rehab is slow and there is no date set for return.
Adam McCalvy of MLB.com says Ramirez has been making progress, but it has not been as quick as he or the...
In fallout of the whole Ryan Braun situation, Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio will be offering a $10 voucher to each fan that attends the team’s home games in August. The voucher will be good for being used on food, beverages, tickets, or (I was close to including”and” here but one cannot even buy some beers for $10) team apparel/merchandise.
“We were finalizing something...
The Milwaukee Brewers have saved the majority of their runs for the late innings and are on the verge of their first four-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs.
Scoring may be more frequent for both teams if Chicago starter Edwin Jackson can't end his struggles versus the Milwaukee Brewers and Wily Peralta is unable to overcome his recent woes Wednesday night.
The Brewers (46-61) haven...
