Jose Quintana and three relievers shut out the Milwaukee Brewers on three singles Tuesday night, 3-0.
The defeat pushes Milwaukee two games back of the division-leading Chicago Cubs. Jhoulys Chacin absorbed the defeat despite giving up only one hit and a walk in five innings. An error on a pickoff play cost the Brewers a run in the second. The loss means Milwaukee won't get the three-game sweep it needed to retake first place. Christian Yelich walked in the fourth inning to reach base for a 27th straight game. Chase Anderson starts the last game of the three-game series tonight at Wrigley Field. He will be opposed by Kyle Hendricks.
