Late surge helps Brewers to win (AUDIO)

The Brewers bats woke up in the top of the 9th Monday at Wrigley Field as Milwaukee notched a 5-0 win over the Chicago Cubs.

The Brewers managed just 3-hits in the first 8-innings but surpassed that total with 4-hits in the 9th.  Carlos Gomez broke the scoreless tie with an RBI Single.  After that, Jeff Bianchi and Rickie Weeks each clubbed two-run doubles to pad the lead.

Kyle Lohse saw no run support once again tossing 6-scoreless innings for a no decision. That has been the story for Lohse all season according to Manager Ron Roenicke…

Brandon Kintzler pitched a scoreless 8th inning to fall into the victory.  He is now 3-0 on the year.

The Brewers and Cubs will lace it up today for a day-night double header at Wrigley.  Game one begins at 1:20 with Yovani Gallardo (8-9, 4.88 ERA) tossing against Carlos Villenueva (2-7, 4.23 ERA) of the Cubs.  The night cap begins at 7:05 as Tyler Thornburg (1-0, 2.95 ERA) gets the call for Milwaukee against Jake Arrieta (1-2, 7.23 ERA) of the Cubs.
