CUBS 5 BREWERS 2 F...Cubbies All-Star First Baseman RIZZO ruins the BEER MAKERS starter JIMMY NELSON'S great outing with an 8th Inning GW Three-Run blast!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" as the NORTH SIDERS head into meaningful August Hardball in Beer Town U.S.A.! #CHCvsMIL #CubsNation #Piwowarzy #NLCentral2K15Rivals

Milwaukee Brewers RHP Jimmy Nelson was dealing all game long as he had the Chicago Cubs Hitters stifled for seven frames. The "Piwowarzy" got to Cubbies starter Jake Arrieta in the 2nd on a run-scoring double and triple by Jonathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun in the 3rd to take a 2-0 lead.

That proved critical for Nelson who before the 8th had allowed had a goose egg up in the Cubbies run section of the scoreboard. Then came the 8th frame with Smith still on the hill and both Addison Russell and Dexter Fowler start the frame off with back to back singles. "Brew Crew" Reliever Jeremy Jeffress replaces Nelson with no outs and ducks on the pond.

Cubbies Kykle Schwarber promptly strikes out and that was one down with two to go. Chris Denorfia then flies out as he pinch-hit for Chris Coghlan and that was two outs. And just before Jeffress could get both Smith and the Brew Crew out of the 8th inning jam Anthony Rizzo takes one to right center looking like a 9-Iron golf shot and just like that 3-2 Cubbies!

Chicago would add two more for insurance purposes in the 9th as North Siders Captain Save-A-Game Hector Rondon grabs his 14th save and Cubs win...Cubs "Maddon Ball" stays the course with the MLB Trade Deadline looming and Starlin Castro still holding down shortstop...just sayin'!

"Maddon Ball" moves to 54-47 while the "Brew Crew" falls to 44-59...
