Brewer beat Cubs 4-0, move back into first place in N.L. Central
(MILWAUKEE) – Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw helped Milwaukee's offense break through against the Chicago Cubs and Chase Anderson did the rest. Anderson pitched seven innings of one-hit ball to capitalize on a heads-up rundown escape by Cain and a pair of two-run doubles by Shaw, and the Brewers two-hit the Cubs 4-0 on Tuesday night to take back first place in the NL Central. Shaw had already put Chicago up 2-0 when Cain used his head and legs to escape a sticky spot in the third inning. With Christian Yelich at second, Cain hit a ball up the middle that was fielded by second baseman Javier Baez. Yelich got hung up between second and third but stayed alive through three throws before sprinting back to second base. Cain, meanwhile, rounded first hard and fooled the Cubs into thinking he was committing to second. He ran back to first where no Chicago players were around to field a throw from Tyler Chatwood. The Brewers took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Shaw's shot that evaded diving first baseman Anthony Rizzo and rolled into the right-field corner. Milwaukee ended a seven-game skid to Chicago. Anderson (5-5) threw a Brewers' season-high 107 pitches. Chicago's only hit against him was an infield chopper by Willson Contreras in the second. Anderson retired his final 17 hitters. Chatwood (3-5), entered the game leading the major leagues in walks, showed better control while allowing four runs (three earned) and walking two batters in five innings.
