Walkoff suicide squeeze dooms Cubs

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- 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.
 
   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, Bianchi 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. He's the first Cubs pitcher to reach both 200 strikeouts and 200 innings in a season since Ryan Dempster in 2010.
 
   Gomez drove in three runs for Milwaukee with a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly.
