MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers saw their nine-game home winning streak over the Chicago Cubs come to an end with a 5-4 loss Wednesday night. The Cubs won for only the third time in their last 22 contests at Miller Park. Yovani Gallardo ended a string of 22 scoreless innings by giving up two runs in the second. He lasted just four innings, giving up all five Chicago runs – three of them earned – on eight hits and four walks. The loss dropped Gallardo to 6-7. Scott Feldman earned the win, giving up three runs in six innings. He’s now 7-6. Kevin Gregg got his 12th save, despite giving up a homer to Juan Francisco – his second blast in two days. Aramis Ramirez became the 15th active big leaguer to reach two-thousand career hits with a solo homer for Milwaukee. Jean Segura extended his National League lead in hits with a single for his 101st of the year – still the only N-L player with at least 100. Rickie Weeks doubled and singled to extend his hitting streak to 10 games. For the Cubs, Ryan Sweeney homered. Anthony Rizzo went 2 for 4 with a double and two R-B-I’s, as Chicago won its third game in its last five. The Brewers and Cubs are again tied for last in the National League Central. They’ll close out their three-game series this afternoon at Miller Park. Right-hander Wily Peralta will start against Chicago right-hander Matt Garza. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 12:35.
