BREWERS 2 CUBS 9 F...NORTH SIDERS go Three-Piece Sweep over the BEER MAKERS as "MADDON Ball" looks like THOMAS the Train with PERCY and HENRY riding along!..."GET AWAY DAY" if that CUBS Train jumps off the Track there is immediate help! #MILvsCHC #Piwowarzy #NorthSiders #NLCentralDivisionHappenings

Jon Lester with his Battery Mate David Ross adds to the Cubs Win streak which moves to seven games with a Thursday Matinee "W" over the Milwaukee Brewers.  Lester had plenty of help as the Cubbies hit four bombs including two by Cubs Cult Hero Kyle Schwarber.

A Jorge Soler RBI single got things going in the 2nd vs Beer Makers starter Tyler Cravy making it 1-0 Cubs. In the 3rd a Ryan Braun RBI single tied the game at 1-1 and that would be a close to a lead as the Brew Crew would get.  The Cubs then go a Crooked five in the 5th backed by three Bombs (Fowler 2-Run HR and Schwarber/Rizzo Solo HRs) as Cravy was chased after the Schwarber bomb. Cubs led 5-1 after the 5th.

The Brewers than add one more as Schwarber again goes two-run bomb in the 7th and Chris Denorfia adds a Solo Blast in the 8th as the Cubbies win 9-2 going away.  So much for Lester struggling as he moves to 8-8 allowing just two runs through seven and striking out 10. Cubs moves to 65-48 as the Brewers fall to 48-68.

If the Buccos get swept in St. Louis tonight the North Siders would be a 1/2 game back of 'Burgh Hardball as the NL Central is a beast!
