CHICAGO (Kyodo) -- Seiya Suzuki went 1-for-3 with an RBI double as the Chicago Cubs edged the Milwaukee Brewers 8-7 Friday to win their fourth straight game.

    After being rested Thursday on his 28th birthday, Suzuki ripped a line drive to the right-center wall with his first at-bat to plate a runner from second base with two outs in the first inning at Wrigley Field.

    The Cubs scored two more runs in the opening inning to lead 3-2 before the Brewers edged in front twice in a thrilling game involving five home runs, going ahead 5-4 in the third and 7-6 in the sixth.

    Christopher Morel had the final say, however, blasting a two-run shot over the left-field wall in the bottom of the sixth to plate the decisive runs off Hoby Milner (3-2).
