Ryan Dempster continued his dominance of the Milwaukee Brewers (38-29) as the Chicago Cubs (26-39) blank Milwaukee 1-0.
Dempster went 7-innings scattering 4-hits and striking out 7. He did not factor in the decision but the start was still in line with his 15-3 career mark against Milwaukee. Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke on why Dempster is so good against the Crew:
Jeff Samardzija earned the victory for the Cubs while Carlos Marmol notched save #13 on the season.
Randy Wolf had a stellar start for the Crew to no avail. He gave up no runs on 6-hits with 7-strike outs. Wolf on his day…
Kameron Loe fell to 2-6 on the season as he gave up the games only run in the 8th inning.
The Brewers and Cubs play game 2 of their 4 game series tonight at Wrigley Field. Yovani Gallardo takes on Randy Wells. First pitch is 7:05.
