Brewers get just three hits as Cubs salvage a win
MILWAUKEE - Even the team with baseball's best record can lose to the NL Central cellar dwellers sometimes. That's especially true if Jason Hammel pitches the way he did Sunday.
Hammel allowed no hits for the first 5 1/3 innings, finishing with seven scoreless to help the Cubs beat the Brewers 4-0 and salvage one win in the three game series.
Wily Peralta allowed three runs, while Brandon Kintzler allowed a fourth run in relief. Starlin Castro hit two home runs and had three hits total for the Cubs.
Hammel, at 4-1, has half of the Cubs' eight wins this season.
