If only the Brewers could play the Cubs more often. Milwaukee continued their winning ways against Chicago with a 3-1 win on Wednesday night pushing their streak over the northsiders to eight straight games.  The Brewers have also won eight out of their last nine games and are now 13-3 against the Cubs this year. Mike Fiers had another solid outing on the mound scattering three hits over seven and a third innings of work while striking out six and allowing just one run.  Jean Segura had quite the night for the crew in a variety of areas on the field.  The recently acquired shortstop robbed Alphonso Soriano by making a great effort deep behind third base and making an amazing throw to first.  He then gave the Brewers the lead in the 7th inning with a base hit to center field that score Nyjer Morgan.  Segura capped off the inning by stealing second base, and when the Cubs had two subsequent throwing errors, he scored the final run of the night.  Game four of the series is Wednesday afternoon with Shawn Marcum on the mound for Milwaukeee.
