Brewers bounce back to defeat Cubs 3-2 on Friday night


After Chicago took a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning, the Milwaukee Brewer came back with three runs of their own to defeat the Cubs 3-2 on Friday night at Miller Park.

Ben Gamel had the two-RBI base hit in the eighth inning to put the Brewers ahead. Josh Hader pitched the ninth for his 23rd save of the season.

The win came at a cost. For the third time this week, a Brewers starter was removed from the game due to injury, as Gio Gonzalez left in the seventh inning with shoulder tightness.

Milwaukee and Chicago continue their series at Miller Park on Saturday.
