Brewers aim to keep pushing Cubs

CHICAGO -- If there was any chance that Milwaukee was just going to concede the National League Central Division title to the Chicago Cubs, the Brewers made it crystal clear that's not the case.

After a victory fueled by home runs on Tuesday, the Brewers will look to shrink the gap separating themselves and the Cubs when the two teams wrap up a two-game series Wednesday at Wrigley Field.

Milwaukee will enter the matinee with the chance to get to within a game of the Cubs after a 7-0 victory Tuesday. Ryan Braun homered twice and drove in four runs as Milwaukee jumped on Cubs starter Jose Quintana, who surrendered three of the four Milwaukee home runs.
