Gallardo solid in series clincher against Cubs
CHICAGO (WITI)– Sunday’s series finale between the Brewers got off to a slow start until Chicago’s Junior Lake hit a solo shot to put the Cubs ahead 1-0.
The Brewers didn’t respond until the top of the 7th when a Jeff Bianchi single scored 2. Starter Yovani Gallardo helped himself out with an RBI single and the Brewers took that 3-1 lead all the way to the bottom of the 9th to secure the series win.
Gallardo was solid picking up his 11th win of the season going 7 innings pitched with 1 earned run on 3 hits and fanning 6.
The Crew will head to St. Louis for 3 against the first place Cardinals starting on Tuesday.
