Garza pitches Brewers past Indians in return from DL

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Garza pitched six shutout innings in his return from the disabled list, Jean Segura hit a two-run homer for his first extra-base hit in more than six weeks, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 8-1 Tuesday night.

Cleveland starter Danny Salazar (8-5) allowed only two hits in six innings but was hurt by both in losing his first start since the All-Star break.

Gerardo Parra hit the first pitch of the game from Salazar for the first of his two triples. Parra scored on a groundout, and Segura's home run in the second made it 3-0.

It was Segura's first extra-base hit since June 5, a span of 192 plate appearances. He had 38 singles in that time.

Garza (5-10) scattered six hits, walked two and struck out four. He held the Indians hitless in six at-bats with runners in scoring position.
