CHICAGO (WREX) -

The Chicago Cubs lost their second straight series to the Milwaukee Brewers, falling in 11 innings in walkoff fashion. Martin Maldonado walloped the game-winning RBI single off Jason Motte with the bases loaded in extra innings. Anthony Rizzo went 2-5 for Chicago, raising his season batting average to .330.

The Brewers improve to 11-21, still worst in the NL Central, while the Cubs drop to an even 15-15, 6.5 games behind the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals. Joe Maddon's club starts a seven-game homestand on Monday, hosting the Mets and Pirates.

The Windy City's American League team fared better on Sunday as the White Sox beat the Reds 4-3 in a 9th inning walkoff. Gordon Beckham drove home the winning run with two in scoring position against Cincinnati closer Aroldis Chapman after Chicago closer David Robertson blew his first save of the season in the top half of the frame.

The White Sox improve to 12-16, their fourth win in the last six games. They'll continue their interleague road trip on Monday at Milwaukee.
