Gallardo stays hot in Brewers victory

Yovani Gallardo continued his recent success, pitching seven strong innings in a 3-1 Brewers victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Gallardo allowed 1-run on 3-hits, improving to 11-9 on the season.  He is 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA in five starts since coming back from a hamstring injury that put him on the disabled list.  The last time Gallardo took the mound at Wrigley Field, he had to leave with a tight left hamstring injury.

The Cubs scored their only run on a Junior Lake home run in the 5th inning.

Jeff Bianchi came on as a pinch hitter for Scooter Gennett in the 7th to drive in two of the Brewers three runs.

The Brewers (62-80) are off today, their final off day of the season.  They’ll travel to St. Louis for three against the Cardinals on Tuesday night before a long 10-game home stand to follow.
