CHICAGO, IL (WHBL) - After being in first place every day since April fifth, the Milwaukee Brewers dropped to second in the National League Central after losing to the Cubs in Chicago, 4-2 on Sunday. The loss was the sixth straight for Milwaukee, which was out-scored 41-13 in those outings.  Saint Louis took a one-game division lead over the Crew by beating Pittsburgh 5-4 at home.  The Pirates are three games back in third.  The Cubs out-hit the Brewers 11-7 in their series opener at Wrigley.  Khris Davis and Gerardo Parra hit back-to-back homers in the seventh inning for their only scoring offense.  Parra went 3 for 4 on the day.  For the Cubs, Wellington Castillo hit a two-run homer and a run-scoring single.  The single scored mega outfield prospect Jorge Soler, who doubled twice and became the first National League rookie since 1938 to hit for extra bases in each of his first five games.  Soler is hitting .556 in that span with three homers and seven R-B-I's.  Luis Valbuena also hit a solo homer for Chicago.  Jacob Turner struck out seven in six-and-a-third innings to get the win.  He's 5-8.  Hector Rondon earned his 23rd save.  Jimmy Nelson took the loss, gave up three runs on nine hits in six frames.  He's now 2-6.  The Brewers play the Cubs again Tuesday night at Wrigley.  Right-hander Yovani Gallardo starts against Cubs righty Jake Arietta.  Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:30
