Cubs' Late-Inning Comeback Attempt Falls Short Again In 4-3 Loss

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Casey McGehee drove in two runs to back a solid performance from Chris Narveson as Milwaukee held off Chicago, 4-3, in the middle installment of a three-game series.

Ryan Braun collected three hits and a walk while Prince Fielder added a pair of hits and a run batted in the visitors’ second straight win after five consecutive losses. Both had five hits in the Brewers’ 18-1 demolition of the Cubs in the series starter on Monday.

Narveson (9-7) allowed a lone run on six hits while walking one and striking out six over 5 2/3 innings to grab the win for Milwaukee, which earned a fifth series win on the road in 18 sets away from home. John Axford gave up a run in the ninth but hung on to record his 16th save of the season.

Thomas Diamond (0-1) suffered the loss in his big-league debut after yielding three runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out 10 for the Cubs, who absorbed a seventh straight defeat.
