Rizzo, Hammel lead Cubs to 8-0 win of BrewersSubmitted: 05/31/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Anthony Rizzo hit two two-run homers and Jason Hammel tossed seven strong innings Saturday, lifting the Chicago Cubs to an 8-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Both of Rizzo's homers came on full-count pitches and went deep to right, the second one into the second deck to give the Cubs a four-run lead in the sixth.

It was more than enough support for Hammel (6-3), who frustrated the Brewers by mixing a fastball in the low 90s with a tough slider. He allowed just four hits while striking out a season-high eight to help Chicago snap a three-game losing streak.

The Cubs chased Brewers starter Wily Peralta (4-5) in the five-run sixth that started with a single from Hammel, who later scored on Rizzo's homer.
