Brewers beat Cubs 6-5 after Gallardo injured

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jean Segura hit a solo homer and the go-ahead double, Khris Davis added a three-run shot, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-5 after Yovani Gallardo left with a hamstring injury in the first game of a day-night doubleheader Tuesday.

Davis' homer in the seventh on the first pitch from reliever James Russell (1-3) wiped out a 5-2 deficit, and Segura capped the four-run rally with an RBI double, giving the Brewers a 6-5 lead.

Milwaukee survived a major scare after Joe Henderson came on in the ninth. He walked a pinch-hitting Dioner Navarro and Welington Castillo, who drove a 2-0 pitch just foul beyond the left-field wall.

Henderson then retired Cody Ransom on a fly to center to give him 13 saves in 16 chances.
