MLB: Milwaukee 4, Chicago Cubs 2

April 21, 2013 at 5:49 PM

MILWAUKEE, April 21 (UPI) -- Ryan Braun cracked a go-ahead, three-run homer Sunday, powering the Milwaukee Brewers to their seventh straight win, 4-2 over the Chicago Cubs.

The Brewers were behind 2-1 in the fifth inning when they put two runners aboard with two outs against Cubs starter Scott Feldman (0-3), whose fielding error kept the inning alive.

That brought up Braun, who smashed a 2-2 offering into the upper deck in left field, boosting the Brewers to a three-game series sweep of Chicago.

The blast handed a first major league victory to Wily Peralta (1-1). The Dominican rookie surrendered a pair of runs on five hits over 6 2/3 frames, walking three and striking out three.

Jim Henderson turned in a scoreless ninth for his fourth save as the Brewers moved above .500 (9-8).

Feldman was touched for four runs (one earned) on three hits over five full frames.

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a two-run clout for the Cubs, who fell for the sixth time in seven games.
