start with a two-run seventh-inning homer in the Brewers' 2-1 win over the
Cubs on Wednesday.
Gallardo (1-1) went seven innings, allowing just one run on five hits while
striking out six, Francisco Rodriguez stranded a pair in the eighth and John
Axford worked around a two-out ninth-inning double for his second save of the
Mat Gamel added a single and a double for Milwaukee, which will look for the
sweep of this four-game series on Thursday.
Starlin Castro knocked in a run in the first inning for the Cubs and Ryan
Dempster (0-1) took the loss despite giving up just two runs on five hits over
6 2/3 innings.
