Chicago Cubs win Chicago Cubs win!!

Cubs win Cubs win!! Cubs erased deficits of 6-2 and 7-4 to snap a 4 game losing streak with a 9-7 win over the Brewers. Kyle Schwarber and Miguel Montero each hit a two-run homer, Albert Almora Jr. and Jon Jay added run-scoring hits in a four-run sixth inning. Cubs Brett Anderson pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed six runs and eight hits. Anderson was hit in the lower left leg by a hard grounder in the first inning but stayed in the game. Wade Davis got his third save and the bullpen retired 15 of its final 16 batters as the Cubs snapped a four-game skid. In the sixth, Montero singled with one out and Javier Baez followed with a double to put runners on second and third. Almora, pinch hitting, drove in both with a single to left field to make it 7-6.  Justin Grimm, Carl Edwards Jr, Hector Rondon and Wade Davis shut the Brewers down. Go Cubs!
