Chris Volstad started for the Cubs and had his best start of the season so far when he held the Brewers to just four hits. Volstad fell apart in the sixth inning when he allowed five runs. The Cubs ended up losing 8-2 to the Brewers.

I'm sure both teams were still tired from last night's crazy 13-inning game. Cubs manager Dale Sveum said, "That was a crazy game, no doubt about it, for both teams. It was a 13-inning game, but for both teams to completely use every (almost) every player....there's not too many games you see 50 guys used. Not all 50, but every bench and bullpen guy used."
Tomorrow the Cubs and Brewers will play the last game of this series at 1:10pm CT in Milwaukee. Jeff Samardzija is scheduled to start for the Cubs.
