Recap


Yovani Gallardo struck out 10 over seven strong innings and the National League Central leading Milwaukee Brewers held off the visiting Chicago Cubs 6-4 on Saturday.

Gallardo (15-8) allowed one unearned run, though it came as the result of his own throwing error in the second. He scattered six hits and a pair of walks to improve to 9-1 at home this season.

The Brewers extended their division lead to 10 1/2 games over the St. Louis Cardinals.
 
Milwaukee took a 3-0 lead in the first on a two-run homer by Casey McGehee and an RBI double by Ryan Braun.
