Estrada, Brewers top Cubs 5-2

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marco Estrada allowed two hits in six solid innings to win for the first time in almost a year, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the Chicago Cubs 5-2 Tuesday night.

Estrada (1-5) started for the 16th time this season and made 14 relief appearances over this season and last since his 11-4 win at Pittsburgh on Aug. 23, 2011.

The Brewers right-hander gave up Alfonso Soriano's double leading off the second and rookie starter Chris Rusin's first major league hit, a one-out triple in the third. Estrada worked retired David DeJesus on a comebacker and then Josh Vitters took a called third strike to end the inning.

Estrada retired 18 of 21 batters before turning over a 1-0 lead to Kameron Loe to start the seventh.
