Cubs’ pitchers did it again!  For the second consecutive night, Cubs’ pitching staff combine to shut out the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ryan Dempster was impressive, striking out 8 in 7 scoreless innings to earn his 100th career victory.

In the first inning, Marlon Byrd notched his 900th career hit and reached a personal best, 156th base hit for the season.
