Cubs avoid sweep with 6-1 win over Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Brewers ended up with a .500 record for July, after losing to the Cubs in Chicago 6-to-1 last night. The Brewers blew a chance to get their first-ever four-game sweep of the Cubbies. But they still went 14-and-14 last month. Jonathan Lucroy says it shows that the team is past the Ryan Braun suspension, and is focused on the game. Wily Peralta lost his second straight start, giving up four runs – three earned – in five innings. He’s now 7-and-11.
