7/30 Brewers 3, Cubs 2 – 2nd game
The Cubs were swept in Tuesday’s doubleheader by the Brewers, losing the second game, 3-2. In his Cubs debut, Jake Arrieta posted a quality start, giving up two hits over six innings. He’s the 45th player to appear for the Cubs this year, eight shy of the franchise record of 53 set last season. As well as Arrieta did, he’s headed back to Triple-A Iowa. Michael Bowden struck out four over two innings of scoreless relief. The Brewers scored the game winning runs against Kevin Gregg. Chicago lost both games of the twinbill by one run, and now are 15-23 in one-run games, including a 4-11 mark at Wrigley. It’s the first time the Cubs were swept in a doubleheader since June 28, 2011, when the Giants took two. Also, Chicago now is 15-31 against NL Central teams.
