It’s the fourth and final foursome in the Sweet 16 with these Milwaukee Brewers looking to make it to the Elite 8 in the Jeff Suppan Region.

The final run came in the 7th inning, when Hiura delivered his second triple — tying the Brewers’ team record for triples in a single game — and Narvaez again drove him in. The Cubs threatened in the 8th inning, putting two men on with nobody out, but Devin Williams struck out the side to end the rally, and Josh Hader picked up the save to seal it.
