Recap: Milwaukee vs. Chicago Cubs

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Luis Valbuena, Nate Schierholtz and Brian Bogusevic homered and the Cubs won the finale of a four-game series 5-1 over the Brewers on Thursday to avoid being swept.

The Cubs snapped a five-game losing streak and finished 4-7 on an 11-game road trip.

Jake Arrieta (3-2) struck out five in seven innings to get the win, giving up just three hits, a walk and one run. He also knocked in a run with a sacrifice bunt.

The Cubs outhit the Brewers 13-4.

"We played a really clean game, swung the bats," said Cubs manager Dale Sveum. "It's big to not get swept."

Coming off a complete game in his last outing, Kyle Lohse (10-10) took the loss after giving up three runs, seven hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out four.

Milwaukee had a four-game winning streak snapped. Carlos Gomez homered in the loss.

Thursday marked the last game of the season between the NL Central rivals.

The Brewers dominated the Cubs, going 13-6 against them this season, but showed little signs of life on Thursday.

"We didn't have many chances to do much (offensively)," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "We did square up some balls, about five or so that were hit right at people. But we didn't do much damage."

Arrieta walked the leadoff batter, then retired 11 in a row. Meanwhile, the Cubs took a 3-0 lead.

Valbuena homered into the second deck in right field in the first inning to give them a 1-0 lead. It was his 12th of the season. Schierholtz hit his 21st of the season in the third, scoring Anthony Rizzo.

Chicago scored its next run off Burke Badenhop in the sixth on Arrieta's sac bunt.

Gomez homered in the seventh for Milwaukee, his 21st of the season, and Bogusevic belted his sixth of the year off Donovan Hand in the ninth.
