Cubs, Brewers meet in key two-game series

CHICAGO -- If the Chicago Cubs needed a shot in the arm heading into what could prove to be a pivotal two-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers starting Tuesday at Wrigley Field, David Bote certainly delivered.

Bote's walk-off grand slam on Sunday delivered a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals that not only provided the first-place Cubs a series victory but extended their lead over the Brewers in what remains a tightly contested race in the National League Central.

Now the Cubs will look to create even more breathing room in two games that could really do damage to second-place Milwaukee's division title hopes.
