CHICAGO (AP) - Addison Russell hit a three-run homer off Neftali Feliz (0-2) that capped a four-run ninth inning.

The Milwaukee Brewers will look to come out victorious in the rubber match with the Cubbies after falling 9-7 in game 2 against Chicago.

The Cubs trailed by 4-1 after six innings and 4-2 through seven. Wade Davis pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his third save.

Felix Hernandez (2-1) allowed four runs and 12 hits in 6 1/3 innings. The Brewers squandered an opportunity in the top of the sixth, loading the bases with one out but failing to plate any insurance runs. Travis Shaw was 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs.

It took the Brewers three batters to break through against Lackey in the first inning. Domingo Santana went 0 for 3 with 2 RBI and Manny Pina along with Oswaldo Arcia each chipped in an RBI in the loss.

NCAA hockey regional to return in 2019
ME has been shut out in its bid to host NCAA men's hockey tournament games at Portland's Cross Insurance Arena in 2019. The city bid for the hosting rights earlier this year. "The last time we hosted in 2009 it was a big hit".

In the sixth, Montero singled with one out and Javier Baez followed with a double to put runners on second and third.

Hundley doubled into the left field corner with two outs to set up Panik's game-winning hit off Scott Alexander (0-1).

That chased Nelson, and then Jay greeted Hughes with a triple off the base of the wall in right-centre to score Almora and tie it. He threw 88 pitches (57 strikes) and appears ready to be activated from the 10-day DL.

"It's not like we're playing poorly", manager Joe Maddon said. "He's ready to go". "Guys just don't show up and do this without being able to do a lot more and be consistent and have very productive seasons".

A night after breaking up a potential no-hitter with a ninth-inning double, Haniger scored in the first inning, had a two-run single in the second and clanged a two-run double off the wall in deep center field in the fourth.
