Brewers Sweep Cubs In Tuesday Doubleheader



The Milwaukee Brewers may have swept the Chicago Cubs in a split doubleheader but another injury clouded the successful day. Staff ace Yovani Gallardo was forced to leave game one with a hamstring injury that will likely land him on the disabled list. Gallardo limped off the field after grabbing his hamstring and wincing in pain with just one strike left to get out of the fifth inning.

Gallardo had not allowed a run through four and two thirds innings but saw reliever John Axford give up four consecutive run scoring singles. Trailing 5-2 after five innings, Milwaukee stormed back to pick up a 6-5 victory.

Rookie Khris Davis smashed a three-run home run and All-Star shortstop Jean Segura hit the go-ahead double to catapult Milwaukee. It added up to a four-run seventh inning and a game one victory at Wrigley Field.

Game two looked as though Milwaukee would lose as the team was down to their final strike in the ninth inning and trailing 2-1. Cubs closer Kevin Gregg loaded the bases with two out in the ninth and Jeff Bianchi hit a line drive to the left side of the infield. The ball ricocheted off shortstop Starlin Castro’s glove allowing Norichika Aoki and Jean Segura to score the tying and winning runs.
