CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Dempster pitched eight shutout innings and Derrek Lee homered for the seventh time in 10 games Monday night, carrying the Chicago Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Center fielder Sam Fuld and third baseman Aramis Ramirez made outstanding plays to keep Milwaukee off the board and help the Cubs win for the sixth time in seven games.
Dempster (10-8) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out four to join John Smoltz as the only pitchers to follow three 20-save seasons with two 10-win seasons as a starter.
Dempster is 11-3 all-time against the Brewers.
