CHICAGO (AP) _ Yovani Gallardo tossed seven strong innings and Jeff Bianchi delivered a key pinch-hit single, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the Chicago Cubs 3-1 Sunday.
Gallardo (11-9) allowed one run and three hits. He is 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA in five starts since coming back from a hamstring injury that put him on the disabled list.
Bianchi keyed a three-run seventh with a two-run single.
Scott Baker pitched five shutout innings for the Cubs in his first start of the season following Tommy John surgery last year.
