MILWAUKEE -- Nearly a month into the season, Matt Garza got his first win for the Milwaukee Brewers against his former team, the Chicago Cubs. Garza, who signed a four-year, $50 million deal with the Milwaukee in the off-season, retired the Cubs in order in four of the first six innings. He gave up two runs and four hits while striking out seven and walking one over seven innings as Milwaukee defeated Chicago 5-2 Friday night. "Im just happy that I was in control of my mechanics all game," Garza said. "I just wanted to go and establish my game plan and not get too over-amped." Garza insisted facing the Cubs, for whom he pitched in 2011 and 2012, as well as part of last season, didnt generate any added emotion for him. "Its another game. Ive been on five different teams. If I had to get up for everybody, Id be tired by mid-season," Garza said. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke liked what he saw from Garza. "He really went after guys." Roenicke said. "His command was good. He had really good stuff today." Lyle Overbay homered and Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun each had three hits and a stolen base for the Brewers, who have a Major League best 17-6 record. Garza (1-2) said hes enjoying finally playing on a winning team. "When you go through years of constantly hoping, you kind of run out of hope," he said. "Were going out with the attitude that we are going to win. It brings up a lot better emotion. Its confidence. That what were playing with a lot of right now." Garzas ability to keep pitches down in the zone made it tough on Chicagos hitters, Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "He doesnt rattle very easily. He goes right after hitters. You have to tip your cap to him," Renteria said. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless inning to pick up his 10th save in 10 chances. Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva (1-5) gave up five runs and 11 hits in five innings. The Brewers when Cubs left fielder Junior Lake appeared set to make a routine catch of Scooter Gennetts line drive but the ball sailed past Lakes glove and rolled to the fence, allowing Gomez to score. Brauns single drove in Gennett, who scored as Lake airmailed a throw to the plate, giving the Brewers a 2-0 lead. The Cubs cut the lead to 2-1 in the third on Emilio Bonifacios run-scoring single. The Brewers extended their lead to two runs again in the bottom half of the inning. With Gomez on first, Braun hit a ground ball deep in the hole at short. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro made a strong throw and umpires initially ruled Braun out at first. After a delay of two minutes and 20 seconds, Braun was ruled safe. Jonathan Lucroy followed with a single to score Gomez. Overbay led off the fourth with a homer, giving the Brewers a 4-1 lead. Aramis Ramirezs sacrifice fly in the fifth extended the lead to 5-1. Ryan Sweeneys ground-out plated a run for the Cubs in the seventh.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke applauded Major League Baseballs attempt to eliminate the confusion that has surrounded the "transfer" rule this season by returning to the previous interpretation for when a fielder loses possession of a ball while trying to shift it from his glove to his hand.

All the Tigers have to do is win Sunday versus the Minnesota Twins in the finale of a four-game series at Comerica Park. They are one game ahead of the Kansas City Royals for the AL Central lead, and the Royals will close out their series with the Chicago White Sox this afternoon. A one-game tiebreaker is on tap Monday if needed. Tasked with pitching the Tigers to a division title will be David Price. He is 3-4 with a 3.97 earned run average in 10 outings with the club since coming over via trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. Price is just 2-4 in his past six decisions and did not factor in the outcome of a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, when he yielded three runs in 8 2/3 frames. Price has allowed 14 runs in his last four starts. The left-hander has faced the Twins 10 times (9 starts) in his career and is 4-3 with a 2.84 ERA. Price, the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, is 2-1 in three meetings with Minnesota this season. The playoff-bound Tigers have lost two in a row after winning three straight, and were hammered again by the Twins in Saturdays 12-3 decision. Minnesota recorded an 11-4 victory Friday, then kept it going in the third test of this set by rattling Detroit starting pitcher Kyle Lobstein. Lobstein gave up six runs and seven hits in 4 2/3 innings to suffer the loss and Nick Castellanos homered to go along with three RBI. Its frustrating for sure, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said of his clubs second straight lopsided loss.ddddddddddddYoure in such a deep hole its hard to climb out. Ausmus and the Tigers just need to win Sunday, but the Twins are out to play spoiler before they pack up for the winter. Eduardo Escobar hit a two-run single in his second at-bat during a six-run fifth inning and also clubbed a three-run homer. Escobar finished 4-for-5 with six runs batted in, Chris Herrmann had three hits and an RBI and starter Ricky Nolasco tossed six innings of two-run ball for the victory. Its always nice to play the spoiler, Nolasco said, but we dont play this game to be the spoiler. We play this game to be in their position. Their backs are against the wall, so well see what happens tomorrow. Brian Dozier added a solo homer for the Twins, who hit 70 wins (70-91) for the first time since 2010, the last time they reached the postseason. Minnesota will hand pitching duties to Kyle Gibson Sunday and the right-hander has a 13-11 record to go along with a 4.50 earned run average. Gibson is aiming for his third straight win and made it two in a row with seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-3 victory over Arizona on Tuesday. Gibson, who allowed 15 runs in his previous three starts, is 7-7 in 17 road appearances this season and 2-2 with a 6.86 ERA in four career starts against the Tigers. In an 8-4 win over Detroit on Sept. 17, Gibson posted the triumph even though he permitted four runs and seven hits in six innings. He will try to shake up Detroits title hopes this afternoon. Minnesota is 10-8 against the Tigers this season.
