Cubs' Jackson shuts down Brewers for 7 in 3-0 win
CHICAGO CUBS 3, MILWAUKEE 0

By PATRICK ROSE
Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) -- Edwin Jackson wanted to leave the mound on his
own terms.

Jackson struck out 11 in seven innings and Welington Castillo
hit a two-run double to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 win over
the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Jackson (3-3) had his best outing for the Cubs since signing a
four-year, $52 million deal before the 2013 season. The
right-hander allowed four hits and walked one. He struck out the
side in the first and struck out Elian Herrera to end the fifth
for his 10th strikeout. He finished his outing by striking out
Jeff Bianchi on 95 mph fastball.

Jackson received a visit from manager Rick Renteria after giving
up an 0-2 single to Jean Segura with one out in the seventh, but
Jackson persuaded Renteria to let him finish the inning.

"He wanted it. I didn't say a whole lot," Renteria said. "He
said, `I got this."'

"I definitely wanted to let him know I wanted to finish that
inning," Jackson said. "I had just given up an 0-2 hit from not
executing a pitch, but I just wanted to let him know I felt
good, and I felt confident that I can go out and finish the
inning. He heard me, he listen to me, I guess he heard the
conviction. I was glad to walk off the field on my own."

That wasn't always the case in 2013 when Jackson lost 18 games.

"I felt comfortable last year, last year, I just didn't get the
job done," Jackson said.

Hector Rondon pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in
four opportunities.

Starlin Castro had an RBI double for the last-place Cubs, who
won just for the third time in 13 games.

Milwaukee starter Matt Garza (2-4) was tagged for three runs on
four hits. The former Cub had his second straight start that he
allowed three runs in the first inning.

Garza said he did not have extra adrenaline in his first start
at Wrigley since being traded by the Cubs last season to the
Texas Rangers.

"Nope. I told you guys the first time; it's just another game,"
Garza said. "It stinks the way it turned out, but there's no
more or less emotion. Every time I go out there I go out there
the same way."

The right-hander did rebound by not allowing a hit until a
leadoff single by Anthony Rizzo in the sixth inning. He struck
out seven and walked one.

Milwaukee leadoff hitter Carlos Gomez was a late scratch from
the Brewers' lineup because of lower back tightness. He was due
back Saturday after serving a three-game suspension for his
actions in a bench-clearing incident against the Pittsburgh
Pirates on April 20.

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was loudly booed before his first
at-bat in the first inning. Braun played in his first game at
Wrigley Field since serving 65-game suspension last season for
his involvement with the Biogenesis drug scandal.

The Cubs didn't waste any time testing Garza's fielding ability.
Emilio Bonifacio led off the first with a perfectly placed bunt
that Garza wasn't able to reach in time to have a chance to
throw out Bonifacio at first. Bonifacio later scored on Castro's
double. With two outs, Castillo lined a double down the left
field line to score Castro and Nate Schierholtz to take a 3-0
lead.

"Of course, I'm frustrated, man," Garza said. "What do you
think, I'm happy? It's the worst freaking start of my career,
dude. Yeah, I'm frustrated. I hate this, this feeling.

"So it's keep grinding and keep getting ready every five days.
That's about all I can do," he said.

NOTES: Brewers RHP Jim Henderson (shoulder inflammation) is on
the DL and scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Sunday. He's
eligible to come off the DL Sunday, but no word when he might
return. ... Braun is playing with a right oblique strain and is
less than 100 percent, but manager Ron Roenicke said he likes
having a limited Braun in the lineup because Aramis Ramirez
(strained left hamstring) is out. "With Aramis now out of there,
it would be really tough (playing without Braun). And Ryan, he's
good even when he's not 100 percent," said Roenicke. ... Highly
touted Cubs prospect Javier Baez is struggling in Triple-A Iowa.
In 29 games, the shortstop is hitting .145 with three home runs
and 11 RBIs. He's also committed seven errors.
