Holy cow! The Cubs shut out Milwaukee 1-0 on Tuesday night behind another quality start from Justin Steele (6 IP, 0 ER, 8 K) and Adbert Alzolay's 22nd save.

The North Siders scored their only run in the 1st and held on the rest of the way behind another dominant performance from Steele and three scoreless relief innings from the bullpen (1 H, 0 BB, 3 K).

Steele now leads MLB with 15 wins and the NL with 18 quality starts. His 2.69 ERA is 2nd best among NL starters. Mark Leiter's 25 holds rank 2nd in the NL and Adbert Alzolay has had the most saves in MLB since becoming the Cubs' full-time closer.

The series wraps up tomorrow afternoon at the Friendly Confines.

132 games down, 30 to go. GO CUBS GO!
