Cubs Crush Brewers 12-2; Complete 3-Game Sweep at Miller Park

Posted on 25 April 2010 by Lou

WOW – what a turn of events.  The Cubs were reeling after dropping 5 of 7 games to the lowly Astros and Mets.  But they didn’t give up and completed an impressive 3-game weekend sweep over the Brewers at Miller Park with a 12-2 rout on Sunday.  The Cubs scored 12 runs and belted out 18 hits, including home runs by Kosuke Fukudome, Derrek Lee, Tyler Colvin and Geovany Soto.  Fukudome and Colvin each had 3 hits apiece, while Ryan Theriot had 5 hits and 3 RBI’s and now has his average up to .329 after a slow start to the season.  Theriot was even briefly demoted form the lead-off spot during the series against the Mets in New York.

Randy Weels did a great job on the mound – 7 innings, 2 ER on 7 hits and no walks, with 6 K’s.  Another great start from the dependable Wells.

The Cubs next face the resurgent Nationals in a 3-game set this week at Wrigley Field.  This isn’t your old Nats team, however, as the Nats have already won 11 games this season – 2 more than the Cubs.  Let’s keep the good times rolling on Monday night with Carlos Silva on the bump…
