Brewers aim to rebound from heartbreaker vs. Cubs

MILWAUKEE -- Chicago right-hander John Lackey takes the mound Friday as the Cubs try to push the Milwaukee Brewers further back in the National League Central.

Chicago pushed its lead over Milwaukee to 4 1/2 games Thursday, rallying late for a 5-3, 10-inning victory. The Cubs snapped a three-game losing streak to the Brewers, who had outscored Chicago 20-3 during that stretch.

"This is a fun time of year, September, it's getting late in the year," said Kyle Schwarber, who got the Cubs started Thursday with a home run, his 29th of the year. "To be able to have the kind of race we're in now, it's exciting and it's good for baseball, I think."
