CHICAGO, IL (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended up with a .500 record for July, after losing to the Cubs in Chicago 6-1 Wednesday night. The Brewers blew a chance to get their first-ever four-game sweep of the Cubbies. But they still went 14-14 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 7-11. Peralta gave up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo and a solo shot by Starlin Castro. The Brewers’ defense didn’t help, committing two errors. The Cubs were up 4-0 in the sixth when a 66-minute rain delay took place. Milwaukee scored its only run in the eighth on a double from Lucroy. He had a pair of two-baggers on the night in his first Major League start at first base. The Crew only went 2 for 11 with runners-in-scoring-position. David DeJesus had two hits and three R-B-I’s for Chicago. Edwin Jackson pitched eight innings for the win, giving up a run on eight hits with four strikeouts and no walks. He’s now 7-11. The Brewers took 3-of-4 from the Cubs. But Milwaukee remains three-and-a-half games behind the next-to-last-place Cubbies in the National League Central. The Brewers are off today, and will host Washington tomorrow night.
