Bryant hits first career home run but Cubs lose 12-4
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jason Rogers hit his first career home run, Gerardo Parra also homered and drove in four runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 12-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.
Jean Segura added a solo shot and Khris Davis had three hits and three RBIs for Milwaukee, which finished with its season-high scoring total. The Brewers also improved to 3-3 since Craig Counsell took over as manager for the fired Ron Roenicke.

Kyle Lohse (2-4) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings for the Brewers.
Travis Wood (2-2) took the loss, allowing six runs — four earned — and six hits in four innings as the Cubs lost for the sixth time in eight games.
Chicago catcher David Ross pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
