363 days. That's how long it turned out to be for Milwaukee Brewers right hander Marco Estrada between big league victories. Estrada pitched wonderfully Tuesday night at Miller Park, holding the Chicago Cubs to no runs on just two hits with nine strikeouts over six innings in the Brewers' 5-2 victory. It was Estrada's first win of the year against five losses and his first victory in majors going back to August 23 of 2011 against the Pirates. Milwaukee needed the effort for they won the game with only three base hits. Jonathan Lucroy delivered a key two run double in a three run 6th. Corey Hart drove in a run with a single and Carlos Gomez had the only other hit, a single. Milwaukee did draw 6 walks from Chicago pitching. The bullpen made things interesting again in the 9th as Manny Parra gave up a double and a walk. Jim Henderson came on and allowed a run scoring single from Alfonsio Soriano and an RBI groundout from Josh Vitters before John Axford recorded the final out for his 19th save. The Brewers (56-66) will send Yovani Gallardo against Travis Wood as they go for the series sweep Wednesday afternoon.
