Major League roundup: Cubs rally, beat Brewers in ninth

Reliever Neftali Feliz, the fifth Milwaukee pitcher, allowed two baserunners in the ninth but escaped without allowing a run to earn his fifth save.

Castro went deep into the visiting bullpen in left field for his third homer this season, and Judge followed with a soaring shot that landed more than halfway up the bleachers in left field.

Dodgers 4, Rockies 2 • Scott Van Slyke (John Burroughs Prep) homered and Enrique Hernandez had two hits, scored a run and drove in one to lift host Los Angles.

The Cubs got one of the runs back in the sixth on an RBI single by Willson Contreras, and Russell blooped a single into right field [VIDEO] with runners on first and third in the eighth, making it 4-3.

Yankees 9, White Sox 1 • Starlin Castro hit a three-run homer and Masahiro Tanaka allowed one run in seven innings as NY rolled to finish 8-1 on a homestand.

Chicago (8-7) won its second straight - both comeback victories - while Milwaukee (8-8) has lost two in a row.

He confessed: "What we've done previously has not been good enough". Oxlade-Chamberlain laid the blame at his and his team-mates' feet.

Chicago left-hander Jose Quintana returned a favor to Jimmy Fallon, teaching "The Tonight Show" host a few Spanish phrases in an appearance Tuesday night.

ORIOLES 2, REDS 0: Ubaldo Jimenez's most effective start of the season on Wednesday night wasn't overly dazzling, but he pitched 72/3 shutout innings - allowing just two hits - in a win at Cincinnati.

"You know when you go for a four-out save that something can happen in the ninth and to the Cubs' credit, they kept extending at-bats", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. Rain delayed the start by 55 minutes.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will get the day off Wednesday versus the Chicago Cubs. This sets up Lester to face the Pirates next week and Arrieta to go in Boston when the Cubs get there. It could be the last start for a while for Milone with the projected return of right-hander Matt Garza (right groin strain) from the disabled list later this week. Zach Davies (0-2, 8.79 ERA) is slated to face off against Carlos Martinez (0-2, 3.57 ERA), with first pitch scheduled for 7:10 PM CST. Jeromy Burnitz became the first and last Brewers player to homer in five straight games in August, 1997.

Luckily, Chicago has the best team ERA in the National League, with Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, and Anderson leading the rotation.
