The Chicago Cubs used a five-run 7th inning to beat the Brewers 6-5 at Miller Park in Milwaukee on Sunday afternoon. The Brewers held a 4-0 lead after five innings, but reliever Will Smith struggled after coming in for starter Junior Guerra in the 7th, giving up a run-scoring double to Tommy La Stella, a three run double to Anthony Rizzo and an RBI single to Ben Zobrist to give Chicago the lead. Kirk Nieuwenhuis added a home run in the ninth, his 3rd of the series. The Brewers continue their homestand with a series against Arizona tonight. 5:45 pregame, first pitch at 6:20 on News/Talk 1450 KFIZ.
The Lake County Captains bested the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 6-2 at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Kyle Busch won the Brickyard 400 on Sunday to make it clean sweep at Indianapolis.
He led a race-record 149 of the 170 laps and beat Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth to the finish line by 2.126 seconds. Jimmie Johnson was third, 2.638 seconds behind the defending Sprint Cup champ — thanks to the double overtime forced by three late crashes. Five-time race winner Jeff Gordon finished 13th after coming out of retirement to replace the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt is fighting concussion-like symptoms and has not yet been cleared by doctors to drive.

Johnson, Jon Rahm and Martin Laird tied for second. Johnson eagled the 16th and birdied the 18th for a 69. Laird finished with two pars in a 67. Rahm birdied 16 and 18 in a 67.
