MILWAUKEE with great heat. It was a matchup that was worth the price. Brewers Flamethrowing Reliever Josh Hader vs. Cubs Slugger Anthony Rizzo. Lefty on Lefty. Power on power.

Hader won the battle and the Brewers won the game.

Hader celebrated his 25th birthday as he beat Rizzo with great heat to a pair of Cubs runners based in the seventh inning to strand his inner rollie-fingers to a rare eight-on-eight save-save to complete the Brewers' 4-2 win over the Cubs on Sunday at Miller Park.

What Hader finished with was Christian Yelich's 1

00th home run, a Kyle Hendricks double in the first inning, to start an afternoon with three RBI. With the run scoring single by Travis Shaw Milwaukee built a 4-0 lead on.

Cubs catcher Willson Contreras halved this lead with a double-digit home game against Zach Davies and Chicago again threatened with Brewers coach Craig Counsell replaced one left (Alex Claudio) with another in Hader to face the heart of the order. Hader, who was on the pitch for the first time in five days, shot his hardest fastball of the season at 98.3 miles per hour en route to Bryant pop-out, before beating 98.4 mph in an eight-bout Fighting with Rizzo hit in one blow against a fastball and ended in.

Hader threw 13 innings pitches, 10 pitches in a perfect eighth, which started with a slap from Javier Baez, and 13 more pitches in ninth to hedge a fifth hit with as many chances. With three more attacks on Sunday, Hader has beaten 13 out of 25 men he had this season.
