|Brewers Over Cubs
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy hit two home runs and the Milwaukee Brewers scored eight runs in the fifth inning Monday night to rally for a 9-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
The Brewers sent 11 batters to the plate and recorded seven hits in the game-turning inning. The eight runs scored were the most in an inning for Milwaukee since the Brewers scored nine runs in the second inning of an 11-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 5, 2010.
The rally gave Mark Rogers (1-1) his first major league victory in seven career starts, including five this season. Rogers pitched five innings, giving up five hits and three earned runs while recording seven strikeouts. He walked three.
Justin Germano (2-3) took the loss for the Cubs, giving up eight hits and seven earned runs in 4 2/3 innings.
