July 29, 2013 at 11:43 PM

CHICAGO, July 29 (UPI) -- Milwaukee's Jeff Bianchi and Rickie Weeks each delivered a two-run double during a big ninth inning Monday in the Brewers' 5-0 win over the Chicago Cubs.

The contest was knotted in a scoreless tie until the ninth, when the Brewers exploded for five runs on four hits to win going away.

After Jean Segura walked and Jonathan Lucroy singled against Pedro Strop (1-1) to lead off the frame, Carlos Gomez dumped a hit into shallow center for a 1-0 Milwaukee lead.

Two outs later, Bianchi lined two-bagger to right field, scoring Lucroy and Gomez.

Blake Parker then took the mound and after fanning Yuniesky Betancourt, surrendered another two-run double to Weeks as the Brewers took the opener of a four-game set.

Brandon Kintzler (3-0) got the win in relief of starter Kyle Lohse, who scattered five hits over six shutout innings.

Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija fired seven scoreless frames, allowing three hits while striking out seven.
