Taylor HRs in both ends, Ashby fans 12, Brewers sweep Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) — Tyrone Taylor homered in both games, Aaron Ashby struck out a career-high 12 in the nightcap and the Milwaukee Brewers swept a doubleheader from the Chicago Cubs 7-6 and 3-1, Luis Urías lined three-run homer into the basket in left-center to break a seventh-inning tie in the opener.
The Brewers trailed 4-2 before Taylor's two-run homer in the sixth, and Milwaukee led 2-1 in the second game when Taylor homered in the eighth.
Victor Caratini hit a tiebreaking home run in the fifth inning against his former team, and the Brewers won their third in a row.

The last to do it was current bullpen coach Jim Henderson on 7/30/13, also at Wrigley Field.
