|Dempster Breaks Streak, Cubs Pound Brewers 10-0
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Dempster earned his first win since last August, throwing seven innings of three-hit ball as the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-0 on Tuesday night.
Coming into Tuesday's game, Dempster (1-3) had gone 18 straight starts without a victory, a streak dating to Aug. 16 of last season. Dempster broke his winless streak in dominant fashion, not allowing a baserunner until Cody Ransom singled to lead off the sixth.
Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run home run, Jeff Baker added a two-run shot and Bryan LaHair hit a solo homer for the Cubs, who snapped an 11-game road losing streak. Chicago's road slide matched a franchise record set in 1954.
