Hellweg gets first win as Brewers beat Cubs 5-3

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Logan Schafer hit a three-run triple and Johnny Hellweg pitched six innings for his first career major league victory in the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Hellweg (1-3) allowed three runs on four hits. He struck out one and pitched around three walks to finally earn his first victory after flourishing in the minors.

Brewers relievers Rob Wooten and Brandon Kintzler each pitched a scoreless inning then Jim Henderson pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 27 opportunities.

Hellweg was the Pacific Coast League's pitcher of the year after going 12-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 23 starts at AAA Nashville.

The Cubs got solo homers from Luis Valbuena and Brian Bogusevic who fell to 16 games under .500 at Wrigley Field. With the loss, the Cubs dropped behind the Brewers for last place in the NL Central.
