MILWAUKEE – Matt Garza picked up where he left off in his previous two outings, as more scouts were on hand Thursday to watch the veteran right-hander at Miller Park.

Garza went seven strong innings, allowing one run and eight hits. He struck out 10 and walked one while improving to 3-1 with a 3.83 ERA as the Cubs topped the Brewers 7-2.

Winning two out of three in the series, the Cubs beat Brewers right-handed starter Wily Peralta, as Dioner Navarro hit a three-run homer to lead the Cubs’ nine-hit attack.

“It’s a blast when they spot you with seven [runs] before the fifth inning,” Garza said. “My job was just to put up a zero every time we scored and not let them get any momentum.”

The Cubs captured their first series at Miller Park since winning two of three Sept. 10-12, 2010. The Cubs had lost their previous seven series in Milwaukee.
