Cubs-Brewers Preview

(AP) -- Anthony Rizzo is helping the surging Chicago Cubs win ballgames, and that's all he seems to care about.

He'll look to continue his offensive roll Sunday when the visiting Cubs try to complete a four-game sweep of the lowly Milwaukee Brewers.

Rizzo homered in a career-high fourth consecutive game Saturday with a three-run shot that keyed Chicago's fourth straight victory, 4-2 over Milwaukee. Before this stretch, during which he's gone 8 for 15 with four home runs and nine RBIs, Rizzo batted .118 during the Cubs' 3-6 slump and had gone 17 games without homering.
