Brewers sweep Cubs with 3-1 win
(CHICAGO) – The Milwaukee Brewers needed to sweep the Chicago Cubs, and they did. Travis Shaw hit a two-run homer, Zach Davies earned his major league-best 17th win and the Brewers beat Chicago 3-1 Sunday to close within two games of the NL Central leaders. Chicago entered the series with a five-game division lead, a season high, but the defending World Series champions totaled three runs in the series. Milwaukee is tied for second in the NL Central with St. Louis. Davies (17-8) allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings, and Corey Knebel finished for his 34th save in 39 chances. Kyle Hendricks (6-5) gave up three runs and four hits in six innings. Rene Rivera put the Cubs ahead with a two-out RBI double in the second. Cubs catcher Willson Contreras (strained right hamstring) was activated, but the Cubs plan to ease their starting catcher back into action. He struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh.

Cincinnati 10 – NY Mets 5
Atlanta 10 – Miami 8 (11 innings)
Washington 3 – Philadelphia 2
St. Louis 7 – Pittsburgh 0
Colorado 8 – LA Dodgers 1
Arizona 3 – San Diego 2
