MILWAUKEE - Mark Rogers of Orrs Island, Maine, got his first major league win as the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Chicago Cubs 9-4 Monday night.
Jonathan Lucroy hit two home runs and Milwaukee scored eight runs in the fifth inning to rally for the win.
The Brewers sent 11 batters to the plate and recorded seven hits in the game-turning inning. The eight runs scored were the most in an inning for Milwaukee since the Brewers scored nine runs in the second inning of an 11-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 5, 2010.
The rally gave Rogers (1-1) his first win in seven career starts, including five this season. Rogers pitched five innings, giving up five hits and three earned runs while recording seven strikeouts. He walked three.
