Brewers surge to third straight win over Cubs

Brewers surge to third straight win over Cubs”

"We've got our work cut out for us, but we've put ourselves in a very good position", Counsell said.

Houser's only other mistake in five career relief outings spanning 7 2-3 innings versus Chicago was a two-run homer by Kris Bryant in a 4-1 Brewers loss May 12.

Lester second guessed himself on his approach to Austin.

Bote didn't wait there long as Lester doubled him home. "Hard to come back from". For the Brewers, Adrian Houser started on the bump, and he pitched six innings of 4-run ball, in which he fanned six.

Cubs shortstop Addison Russell was hit in the face by a 94 miles per hour fastball from Houser.

Russell keyed a three-flee rally sooner than Ian Happ changed him in the arena. Lester, though, had nothing to show for seven shutout innings at Miller Park on July 27 as his bullpen blew a two-run lead in an eventual 5-3, 10-inning defeat. Russell was able to temporarily remain in the game after the fastball, which seemed to graze Russell's batting helmet before making contact with Russell's head, once he was examined by trainers but was pulled following the conclusion of the half-inning. He has a nasal contusion and is under evaluation for a possible concussion.

Javy Baez is going to miss some time.

Addison Russell will fill in for Baez.

Jon Lester made the start on the mound for the Cubs and, despite striking out seven, was taken for eight runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings of work.

Danny Hultzen, in his long-awaited fundamental league debut, hit Yelich in the left hand with a 94 miles per hour slider that deflected and hit homeplate umpire Will Shrimp factual above his neutral knee.

"It's really unfortunate. Javy's the heart of this team", catcher Wilson Contreras said prior to Saturday night's game to the club's official website. After a brief delay, Little went back behind the plate. A 64-second review confirmed that Yelich had been hit.

Hultzen was once the 2d overall preserve conclude by Seattle in the 2011 draft but was once beset by injuries in the minors. Each of the first 29 players selected that year have now appeared in a major league game.
