Two RBI groundouts were all the Milwaukee Brewers to come with a half-game of the streaking Chicago Cubs in a 2-1 victory Friday night. Left hander Brent Suter stifled the Cubs bats for seven innings, allowing just four hits and a walk to go with his five strikeouts. Hernan Perez and Manny Pina drove in the lone runs in the 2nd and 4th innings for the Brewers, while an 8th inning home run by Javier Baez was the only tally the visiting Cubs would muster.
The Brewers could retake the NL Central lead with a win Saturday when the two teams meet again at Miller Park at 6:10 p.m.
