    Rowan Wick allowed two runs on two hits and three walks while retiring just two batters in Sunday's win over the Brewers.Wick got the ninth inning in a non-save situation with the Chicago Cubs up 6-2, but he quickly got into trouble and ended up getting pulled with the bases loaded and two runs already coming across. Michael Rucker then recorded the final out to earn his first career MLB save. Wick has now had consecutive rough outings, as he allowed four runs to take a blown save and the loss Friday. He's still the team's primary closer for now, though manager David Ross may turn to some other options to finish the season.

    Cubs' Rowan Wick: Implodes in loss

    Rowan Wick (0-1) allowed four runs on three hits and two walks over 0.2 innings and took the loss Friday against the Brewers. He did strike out two batters in the outing.Wick entered to begin the eighth trying to protect a one-run lead and failed in his pursuit. The right-hander struck out two of the first three batters he faced but couldn't finish the job. He allowed a base hit to knot the game at five and then loaded the bases before Kolten Wong drove in two more. Wick was then relieved of his duties and was charged with another run after the Brewers capitalized on a wild pitch from Dillon Maples. Friday's meltdown was pretty uncharacteristic of Wick, who came in with five straight scoreless appearances and had 12:2 K:BB over that span. The 28-year-old now owns a 4.15 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB over 17.1 innings. He should still be the top option to close for the Chicago Cubs despite Friday's ugly outcome.
