Brewers, Cubs rained out at Wrigley Field, makeup on July 6

Kris Bryant homered twice as the Cubs crushed the Brewers 13-6 at Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon. Oliver Drake said "we will play whenever, if they say conditions are good enough to play we will play". "We haven't really been doing much early on here".

"We got traffic and just didn't get the hit to put a lot of stress on (Arrieta)", Counsell said.

Bryant hit two homers - the ninth multi-homer game of his career - and reached base five times as the Cubs' restructured lineup looked refreshed and invigorated, scoring in seven of eight offensive innings.

"I think we've picked it up in every sense", Arrieta said. Arrieta gave up a two-run homer to Yadier Molina in the bottom of the second and another two-run shot to Matt Carpenter in the bottom of the third. Ryan Braun, activated from the 10-day disabled list before the game, went 0 for 5 with an RBI.

Stearns said he contacted the Cubs to express his displeasure and Cubs sources said Stearns communicated to them they should've waited to call a game.

The over is 21-8-1 in Milwaukee last 30 Saturday games and the over is 20-8-1 in Milwaukee last 29 overall while the over is 20-8-1 in Milwaukee last 29 on grass. "When he got ahead in the count, I thought he pitched all right".

Coming off a three-game sweep of Cincinnati, the Cubs took a 3-2 lead to the fifth. But the right-hander retired the next three batters - Thames, Braun and Shaw - to escape.

"Nothing you can do about (the weather), that's why we're here to embrace the suck", said Cubs manager Joe Maddon, referencing the team's new T-shirt slogan. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award victor has struggled in last five starts with a 7.27 ERA (21 earned runs in 26 innings) after a 2-0 start and a 2.89 ERA in his first three appearances. With men on the corners and one away, rookie Ian Happ narrowly missed a homer, driving in a second run. Even so, Milwaukee took Friday afternoon's matchup by the score of 6-3 while the Saturday afternoon rain out will now take place down the road on July 6. One day you get the wind blowing out, and you can flick home runs. But when the original game time rolled around, it was no longer raining-and things stayed pretty dry for the rest of the day.

The postponement was granted, but then the rain stopped falling.
