The Milwaukee Brewers swept a day-night doubleheader from the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field Tuesday, 6-5 and 3-2.

Jean Segura hit a solo homer and the go-ahead double, Khris Davis added a three-run shot, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-5 after Yovani Gallardo left with a hamstring injury in the first game.

Davis' homer in the seventh on the first pitch from reliever James Russell (1-3) wiped out a 5-2 deficit, and Segura capped the four-run rally with an RBI double, giving the Brewers a 6-5 lead.

Milwaukee survived a major scare after Joe Henderson came on in the ninth.

He walked a pinch-hitting Dioner Navarro and Welington Castillo, who drove a 2-0 pitch just foul beyond the left-field wall.

Henderson then retired Cody Ransom on a fly to center to give him 13 saves in 16 chances. Rob Wooton (1-0) was credited with the win.

In game two, the Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the fifth when Juan Francisco hit his 14th homer of the season.

But the Cubs took advantage of two Brewers' errors to score twice in the seventh. David DeJesus drove in both runs with a double to right center to score Cody Ransom and Cole Gillespie as the Cubs took a 2-1 lead into the ninth.

But Jeff Bianchi hit a two-run single off the glove of Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro to score Norichika Aoki and Segura to put the Brewers ahead, 3-2.

Burke Badenhop (2-3) got the win in relief for Milwaukee. Henderson got his second save of the day retiring the Cubs in the ninth.

Cubs closer, Kevin Gregg (2-3) took the loss in game two.
