Cubs In Haiku: Cubs 13, Brewers 7


Big Z starts out hot
'Til Crew gets to him in 5th
Score 5 with 2 outs

But the Cubs fight back
Helped by poor Brewer pitching
Walk away with win

The Cubs and Big Z blew a 4-0 lead, giving up 5 to the Brewers after 2 outs in the 5th.  But Soto's solo home run in the 5th tied it up.  Then 2 walks, 2 HBPs and a Prince Fielder throwing error helped the Cubs to score 5 times in the 6th on only 2 hits - including Soto's 2-RBI single. 

Two more runs in the seventh (while Len and Bob flirted with Drew Barrymore), and another in the eighth, meant that even after Samardzija gave up 2 in the 9th the Cubs managed their 7th win in the last 8 games.
