Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have news for you. Justin Steele dueled Corbin Burnes in the city that beer made famous.

Slugger Steele gave up a couple of solo homers and Burnes gave up a two-run job to Ian Happ with Frank the Tank on base in the fifth. Lorenzo Cain had earlier taken one away from Willson Contreras. Burnes was effective but the Cubs barreled a few balls. Rafael Ortega just/missed one before Schwindel’s line-drive oppo single.

Good game. The NooCubs never give up. But in the end, it wasn’t quite enough as the Brewers won 6-4.
