MLB roundup: Cubs squeezed out in Milwaukee

Cardinals win to take over first in Central; Sox edge Twins

Pinch-hitter Logan Schafer dropped a suicide squeeze bunt with the bases loaded in the ninth to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 walkoff victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night in Milwaukee.

Aramis Ramirez singled to open the inning off Justin Grimm (0-2), who came on to start the ninth.

Jeff Bianchi ran for Ramirez and advanced on Carlos Gomez’s single to center. Grimm then mishandled Scooter Gennett’s sacrifice bunt for an error to load the bases.

After Caleb Gindl popped out, Schafer put down a slow roller toward the mound, scoring Bianchi.

Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija struck out eight in seven innings, giving him 203 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings this season.

White Sox 4, Twins 3: Dayan Viciedo had three hits and drove in two runs, and Jose Quintana pitched six effective innings in Chicago.

Quintana (8-6) won for the first time since he last faced the Twins, on Aug. 16. He allowed one run while scattering eight hits, with five strikeouts and two walks.

White Sox closer Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth for his 38th save in 44 opportunities.

Cardinals 11, Rockies 4: Matt Holliday had four hits in Colorado, including a two-run homer, to help the Cardinals take over sole possession of the NL Central lead.

Joe Kelly (9-4) allowed three hits over five sharp innings.

Juan Nicasio (8-8) lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed eight runs, which tied a career high.

Holliday led an 18-hit night by the Cardinals, who had seven players with at least two hits.
