Cubs 5, Brewers 4

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Yovani Gallardo struggled with his control, and second baseman Rickie Weeks made a crucial error. Then a rally in the ninth inning came up just short.

This was one rough night for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Gallardo lasted just four innings and the Brewers went on to a 5-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.

Chicago was leading 3-2 when Valbuena reached on a one-out error by Weeks in the fourth. He eventually came around to score on Anthony Rizzo’s two-run single, helping the Cubs take control.

“I have to do my job first,” Gallardo said. “It’s kind of tough for the defense to be ready when I’m out there struggling with my command. I just have to make pitches and whatever happens after that, it’s out of my hands. The guys behind me, they don’t want to make mistakes. It’s not like they’re doing it on purpose.”

Scott Feldman pitched six solid innings for Chicago, which is tied with Milwaukee for last place in the NL Central. Valbuena, Starlin Castro and Brian Bogusevic had two hits apiece.

Feldman (7-6) gave up three runs and six hits in his first victory this season against an NL Central opponent. He retired 11 of his last 14 batters.

“He’ll manage an inning when things start to go a little haywire,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “He ends up giving up one run a lot of times instead of a crooked number. He manages the inning as well as anybody on this team.”
