Cubs Silence Brewers Bats Again; Win Series

The Milwaukee Brewers managed just three hits against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday afternoon as they dropped the rubber game of the series 4-2 at Wrigley Field.  Brewers starter Marco Estrada went just five innings giving up four runs on seven hits and walking two.  Welington Castillo and Mike Olt homered off Estrada, who has given up 12 on the year,  as the Cubs built a 4-0 lead after four innings..  Rickie Weeks tried to get the Brewers going in the fifth with a long 2-run home run to left center, but Milwaukee managed just one hit the rest of the way in route to their second straight loss.  Until Week's home run in the fifth Milwaukee had not scored a run in 20 straight innings and the team struck out a total of 39 times in the three-game series against the Cubs.  The Brewers head to Atlanta to take on the Braves in a four-game series tomorrow, first pitch is set for 6:10 p.m.
