Cubs Take Game Two Over Peralta & Brewers

Entering Tuesday, Wily Peralta led the Major League in wins with fourteen and tried to extend that lead going for number 15. However, the Chicago Cubs scored three runs and shutout the Brewers 3-0.

Cubs rookie starter Kyle Hendricks was to much for the Brewers as he allowed six hits (all singles) in 7 1/3 innings for his fourth win of the season. Hendricks, the twenty-four-year-old right-hander, struck out six and only walked one.

The Cubs got the first of three runs off Peralta in the second on a single that was set up by a wild pitch. The second run scored two innings later in the fourth when the Cubs played small ball. After a leadoff double from Starlin Castro, the Cubs shortstop, he was bunted to third and would score on a single to the right side of the drawn in infield.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo gave his team an insurance run in the sixth inning connecting for his 26th home run of the year.

Peralta picked up his seventh loss on the season, but made it into the seventh inning to give the bullpen arms a rest. Final stat line showed 6 1/3 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2BB, 3K's, 1 HR.

Zach Duke and Jeremy Jeffress combined to close out the game from the bullpen.

Brewers offensively were led by Mark Reynolds with two hits.

The Brewers and Cubs meet up for game three tonight with a 7:05 start. Kyle Lohse, (11-6, 3.33 ERA), gets the start after pitching his 17th quality start of the season against the Dodgers on Friday. Tsuyoshi Wada (1-1, 3.25 EAR), a left-hander, will get the start for the Cubs. Wada makes his first ever start against Milwaukee.
