Yesterday's Results

Cubs 7, Brewers 1

There was no relief from the losing streak again last night. Yovani Gallardo labored through five innings, allowing seven runs, but only five of them were earned. Two were unearned thanks to some sloppy defense, mainly from Elian Herrera. While the pitching and defense struggled, the offense was quiet again, scoring only one run off of a Ryan Braun RBI single.
