After dropping the first two games in the series, the Milwaukee Brewers finally go to the Cubs, winning yesterday on Easter Sunday, beating Chicago 9-4 at Miller Park.
The Brewers finally got to their longtime nemesis, scoring six runs off of Cubs right hander Wade Miller, avoiding a 3-game sweep. Miller entered Sunday's game with a 6-0 record at Miller Park and a 11-1 mark against the Brewers overall.
Miller allowed back to back home runs by Geoff Jenkins and Gabe Gross as a part of a four-run second inning. Starting and winning pitcher Chris Capuano contributed an rbi single as well. Capuano retired the first 11 Cubs in order and ended up allowing 2 runs and scattering 4-hits in 5 1/3 innings of work.
Craig Counsell had 3 hits and drove in three runs with a bases loaded triple in the 8th.
The Brewers begin a 8-game road trip with the Florida Marlins tonight in Miami.
