Brewers Vs. Cubs Final Score: Chicago Drops Series Finale In Milwaukee, 3-2

Powered by a 3-for-4 performance from star outfielder Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers pulled off a three-game sweep of the visiting Chicago Cubs on Wednesday with a narrow 3-2 victory.

Braun, who smacked Chicago pitchers for an RBI double in the first inning, a solo home run in the sixth and then his third triple of the season in the eighth, finished a mere base hit away from his first career cycle in the win.

Taking the loss for the Cubs was left-hander Travis Wood, who fell to 4-10 on the year despite seven strong innings of six-hit ball where he only gave up three runs. After opening the season with a 4-3 record and stellar 3.05 earned-run average, the 25-year-old Wood has now walked away with a defeat in each of his last seven decisions.

Now with a 4-17 record in the month of August, the Cubs will travel back to the Windy City for a three-game set with the Rockies starting Friday afternoon.
