Gindl, Peralta lead Brewers to 6-1 win over Cubs

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Caleb Gindl had three hits, including a two-run home run, and Wily Peralta pitched six strong innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.
 
   The Brewers' fourth win in five games moved them 3 1/2 games above Chicago at the bottom of the NL Central.
 
   Peralta (10-15) gave up an unearned run on five hits. He struck out seven while walking two.
 
   Edwin Jackson (8-16) lasted only four innings for the Cubs, giving up two runs on only two hits and three walks. Jackson has the most losses of any pitcher in the NL. Peralta is second with 15.
 
   After Jackson was pulled from the game for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning, television cameras showed him and Cubs manager Dale Sveum having words as Jackson headed to the clubhouse. Several Cubs players and coaches moved toward the two as Jackson continued walking down the tunnel.
 
   The Brewers got their first hit off Jackson in the fourth inning when Scooter Gennett blooped a single to left field. Gindl followed with a triple off the center-field wall to score Gennett.
 
   Martin Maldonado dropped a sacrifice bunt to score Gindl and Jackson threw the ball past Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo with Maldonado taking second. Jackson got Peralta to line out and struck out Norichika Aoki to get out of the inning.
 
   Chicago cut the lead to 2-1 in the fifth inning. Welington Castillo led off with a flyball down the right field line that Gennett got a glove on but couldn't catch. It was ruled a double, with Castillo taking third after Aoki's relay throw went over the head of shortstop Jean Segura. Castillo scored on Starlin Castro's single.
 
   Milwaukee extended the lead to 4-1 in the sixth inning on Yuniesky Betancourt's pinch-hit RBI single and Segura's RBI double.
 
   Gindl hit his fifth home run of the season in the seventh inning, a two-run shot that pushed the lead to 6-1.
 
   NOTES: Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez returned to the starting lineup. He missed two games after being hit on the left wrist Friday by a pitch from Cincinnati's Mat Latos. . Rookie LF Khris Davis missed his second straight start after reinjuring his left wrist Saturday against the Reds. . Cubs 2B Darwin Barney entered the game leading NL second-baseman with a .993 fielding percentage. Golden Glove ballots were distributed this week.
