(8/15/14) Mike Fiers struck out a career-high 14 batters -- the most ever by a Milwaukee Brewer in a road game -- as the Crew topped the Cubs in Chicago 6-to-2 yesterday.

 Fiers went six scoreless innings in his second start in place of the injured Matt Garza.  The Brewers went up 3-nothing in the first frame and never looked back.  Khris Davis and Mark Reynolds homered for the Crew, and Scooter Gennett had a two-run double.  The Cubs got both their runs late on a single from Chris Valaika.  Cubs' shortstop Starlin Castro ended a 13-game hitting streak.  Fiers gave up a walk and three hits.  His 14 K's were the second-most in Brewers' history, behind Ben Sheets' 18 strikeouts in a home game against Atlanta in 2004.  The win improved Fiers to 2-and-1 on the year.  Edwin Jackson took the loss, giving up five runs in four-and-two-thirds' innings.  It ended a string of seven quality starts for the Cubs, and it dropped Jackson's mark to 6-and-13.  The Brewers split their four-game series at Wrigley Field.  They extended their lead in the National League Central Division to two games over Saint Louis, which moved into second with a win last night.  Pittsburgh fell to third at two-and-a-half back.  The Brewers open a weekend series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles tonight.
