The Milwaukee Brewers were shut out for a second straight game Thursday night at home, dropping an 8-0 decision to the Cubs. John Lester held the Brewers to three hits and a walk in six scoreless innings. Brent Suter took the loss after giving up four runs in five innings. It could be even more costly than just a losing effort for Milwaukee. Closer Corey Knebel suffered a hamstring injury in the ninth while he was just getting some work in. Manager Craig Counsell says the hard-throwing righty will get an M-R-I and will likely go on the disabled list. Outfielder Christian Yelich was held out with a tight oblique, but no decision about putting him on the D-L has been made. Rookie Brandon Woodruff will start for the Brewers in tonight’s (Friday’s) 7:10 P-M game against Chicago.
