The Chicago Cubs (7-7) will be taking on the Milwaukee Brewers (8-7) in an NL Central matchup Wednesday afternoon. We have to do that more consistently. "And he's on his way to that".

Brewers slugger and former La Crosse Logger Eric Thames had two doubles and three hits but ended his franchise record-tying homer streak at five games.

Orlando Arcia's first home run of the season led off the fourth for a 6-2 Milwaukee lead.

The long ball has been a key element to Cubs victories since the beginning of 2015.

Milwaukee increased its homer total to 25 through 14 games, breaking a tie with the New York Mets for the major league lead.

"Coming right out of the gate, I had full control of everything", said Velasquez, who was tagged for five hits and five runs in five innings against the Mets in his previous start. Montgomery got himself in trouble with two of those walks, eventually loading the bases in the sixth, but got out of it.

Addy's homer? Of course you want to see it again!

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Khris Davis hit his seventh home run of the season, Yonder Alonso and Chad Pinder also went deep. "I just thought he had his front-to-back stuff working, his change-up was very good".

Chicago (8-7) won its second straight - both comeback victories - while Milwaukee (8-8) has lost two in a row. Hammel finished 15-10 with a 3.83 ERA in 30 starts before being left off the postseason roster. Cosart was charged with three runs (one earned) on two hits in 3 2/3 innings.

After getting Rizzo to ground out, that brought Addison Russell up to the plate with two outs and the score knotted up at 4 apiece.

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. "That's all it takes, just one hit, one walk and we get rolling". Schwarber had reached base with a lead-off bunt and moved to second on a passed ball. Some of the home run production is dependent on this subjective fact. It's on the (World Series) ring.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Joe Panik's two-out single in the 11th inning scored Nick Hundley as San Francisco defeated Kansas City. The Cubs activated RHP Carl Edwards Jr. off the bereavement list while they placing INF Tommy La Stella on the same list. Vargas (3-0) scattered four hits over seven innings with nine strikeouts and no walks.
