The Chicago Cubs posted just their second series win of the season with a 4-2 victory Sunday over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Welington Castillo and Mike Olt homered while Travis Wood settled in after a shaking first inning for the win. Hector Rondon continues to emerge as the closer, but the title does not mean anything to him, he just wants to help win games.
