Watch carefully, because I'm only going to say this once: WOOO-HOOO! BREWERS BEAT THE CUBS!
The Brewers struck early, scoring two runs in the first inning. The Cubs came back in the bottom of the first, scoring four, but would not score for the rest of the game. The Brewers were very patient with the Cubs pitching, drawing plenty of walks and manufacturing runs. Max went 1-3, with a K, a hit, and a perfect bunt that drove a runner from second to third, which went on to score. The Brewers pitching recovered from the first inning, and went on to shut the Cubs out for the next five innings. Max played two innings in right field, and one in left.

This game was delayed for nearly half an hour when, on a close play at the plate, the Cubs catcher was knocked out after a collision with the Brewers left-fielder. As you can see in the picture below, the catcher didn't give our player the plate, and the Brewer was unable to slide. The catcher woke up and went to the hospital for precautionary reasons, but has been reported as fine.
The Brewers celebrate their win!
