Garza Shines, Greinke Routed as Cubs Beat Brewers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Matt Garza pitched three-hit ball for 8 2-3 innings, and the Chicago Cubs sent Zack Greinke to his worst beating in 1{ years in an 8-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday that prevented a four-game sweep.

Helping the Cubs improve to 2-5, Garza (1-0) struck out nine and walked two _ both in the first two innings. He induced Cesar Izturis to hit into an inning-ending double play in the second, starting a stretch in which he retired 16 of 17 batters.

After Nori Aoki reached on Garza's throwing error with two outs in the ninth, Garza was removed after 119 pitches. Shawn Camp needed just four pitches to end it, retiring pinch-hitter George Kottaras on a game-ending groundout.
