Brewers sweep Cubs, win 7th straight

The Milwaukee Brewers managed just 3-hits on Sunday and still beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 to pull off a 3-game sweep and win their 7th straight game.

Ryan Braun’s 3-run homer in the 5th put the Brewers out in front for good.  They started out 2-8 and now have improved to 9-8.

The domination of the Cubs continued at Miller Park.  The Brewers have now won 18 of the last 20 games played against the Cubs in Milwaukee.

Wily Peralta earned his first win of the season (1-1), pitching 6 2/3 innings before giving way to John Axford who got the last out of the 7th inning.  Tom Gorzelanny worked the 8th and Jim Henderson closed out the 9th for his 4th save in four chances.

The Brewers now head west to face the San Diego Padres in the first of a 3-game series tonight.  Following the games in San Diego, the Brewers will play three in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
