6/27 Cubs 7, Brewers 2

Dioner Navarro belted a three-run homer to back Matt Garza and power the Cubs to a 7-2 victory Thursday over the Brewers to win their first series at Miller Park since Sept. 10-12, 2010.

Garza gave the many scouts in attendance something to think about. The right-hander, who seems to be the subject of trade rumors every season, now has given up two earned runs over 22 innings in his last three outings. Garza appeared to be in total command as he struck out 10, and did not give up a hit until Aramis Ramirez blooped a single to center with one out in the fourth. For the game, the right-hander scattered eight hits over seven innings.

It helps to get some offense. Ryan Sweeney singled to open the second against Wily Peralta, stole second, and moved up on a wild pitch before scoring on Brian Bogusevic’s perfectly placed double down the left field line. One out later, Darwin Barney dribbled a single to right to score Bogusevic.

Sloppy play by the Brewers in the third led to four more Cubs runs. Starlin Castro led off with a single, stole second and scored on a fielding error by left fielder Caleb Gindl, who muffed Sweeney’s fly ball. One out later, Bogusevic reached on an error by first baseman Juan Francisco, who couldn’t handle third baseman Aramis Ramirez’s throw, and Navarro followed with his seventh home run to open a 6-0 lead. All four runs in the inning were unearned.

Garza helped himself in the fourth, hitting his second single of the game before eventually scoring on Nate Schierholtz’s sacrifice fly.

Good to see us scoring some runs….without our cleanup hitter…..

Having fun here tonight. Someone sent us a Cub’s toaster! Have any of you ever seen one? My husband is in the kitchen toasting slice after slice of bread which ends up with the Cub’s logo in the middle. We’ll be eating toast all night!!

Are you serious, White? A Cub`s toaster? That`s among the most unusual items I`ve ever heard tell of. Enjoy! Is good to be posting again after my device has been inoperable for several days.

I have been wondering where you were jhosk. Glad you are functioning again! These “devices” we work with can be very cantankerous. I think I will have to hide the toaster from my husband! I CANNOT EAT ANOTHER PIECE OF TOAST!

why trade Garza he could lead US to a world series title!! I think he should be signed long term with Feldman and wood.i don’t understand why everybody wants to trade everyone all the time I personally like the team the way it is and with sime bullpen help we could be on our way…next year is the 100 year Wrigley anniversary…what a great year for a title run!

Have some Cub’s logo toast joey! Husband got carried away with making Cub’s toast last night – the new toy!

Sounds like just what the Dr. ordered White….with some Cubby Blue…berry jam!

Right joey! We have a ton of Cubbies blueberries just ready to pick in our yard! Recalcitrant:perverse, stubborn, obstinate, resistant, etc. (I looked it up). :)))

Jonathon Gray signed with Rockies June 12th. We are still waiting on Bryant and his recalcitrant agent, Scott Boras. Just saying.

recalcitrant…..nice. I think the rest of us have to amp up our game with that word!!

Let’s hope Hoystein deals Garza while he’s hot….and NOT injured!!!
