Cahill, bullpen combine on 3-hitter, Cubs beat Brewers 3-0

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Trevor Cahill came off the disabled list to throw five innings of two-hit ball in his first start in nearly 16 months, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Tuesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Mike Montgomery followed with two innings, Hector Rondon worked the eighth and Joe Smith walked two in the ninth before Aroldis Chapman got two outs to close the three-hitter.

Cahill (2-3) also drove in a run with a safety squeeze bunt, and the Cubs added runs on a wild pitch and Addison Russell's sacrifice fly off Matt Garza (4-5).

Cahill allowed two walks and struck out Manny Pina with a runner on third to end the fifth.

Chapman hit 103 mph while striking out two for his fifth save with the Cubs, who ended a two-game skid.
