Zack Grienke [[ GRAIN-key ]] fanned nine through six-and-two-third scoreless innings as the Brewers blanked the Cubs, 2-0, on Wednesday evening at Miller Park. Grienke gave up just three hits and a trio of walks to improve to 8-and-4 on the season. John Axford worked a 1-2-3 ninth to nail down his 29th save. Prince Fielder clubbed a solo home run and Yuniesky Betancourt added a sac-fly for Milwaukee, which has won back-to-back games. Rickie Weeks left the game in the second inning with an ankle injury. Carlos Zambrano allowed the two runs through six-and-two-third frames of duty to absorb the tough-luck loss for Chicago. The Northsiders have dropped two straight on the heels of their first three-game winning streak of the season. Randy Wells will toe the rubber opposite Shaun Marcum in this afternoon's series finale.
