CHICAGO -- Yovani Gallardo and the Milwaukee Brewers havent had the year that either had hoped for. Custom Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys . Hopefully finishing strong can put a positive spin on a disappointing season for both. Gallardo pitched seven strong innings to lead the Brewers to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Since returning in mid-August from a stint on the disabled list because of a hamstring injury, Gallardo is 3-0 with a 1.35 earned run average and looks like the ace who won 16 and 17 games, respectively, the previous two seasons. "Ive been feeling good," he said. "Thats the main thing and to be consistent. The year hasnt gone the way I wanted it to, but coming off the DL kind of refreshes the mental side and you can go out there and just pitch." Gallardo (11-9) allowed just three hits in his seven innings with one walk and six strikeouts. The Cubs, who dropped to 29-46 at Wrigley Field, could only muster a Junior Lake home run on offence, and wasted a strong but brief outing by starter Scott Baker, who had five shutout innings in his first start of the season following Tommy John Surgery in 2012. "It felt very good," said Baker, who threw just 55 pitches before being pinch hit for in the fifth. "There were some emotions there. Its been a long road and I was happy my family was here to share this moment because theyre just as much a part of this as I am. Rehab process is hard on everyone just not the player himself. Its been a long road so that definitely plays into it being a very special day for me and my family." Lakes fifth-inning blast gave the Cubs a 1-0 lead and it appeared that Baker might be the feel-good story of the day. But the Brewers rallied in the top of the seventh to turn the game around. Former Cub Aramis Ramirez started things with a one-out double down the left-field line off reliever Justin Grimm (0-1). Carlos Gomez followed with a single to right field, also off Grimm. Ramirez was held at third base, but the throw from Nate Schierholtz missed the cut-off man, allowing Gomez to take second. Left-hander James Russell then was brought in by Cubs manager Dale Sveum with lefty Scooter Gennett due up. But Brewers manager Ron Roenicke countered with righty Jeff Bianchi to pinch hit and he delivered a single up the middle to plate both runners and put the Brewers on top, 2-1. "That was the ballgame, basically," Roenicke said of Bianchis hit. "If he doesnt get that hit, were still trailing and we probably end up hitting for Yovani." Following a walk and a fielders choice for the second out, Gallardo was allowed to bat and provided a little insurance with a single to left to score Bianchi to make it 3-1. The Brewers bullpen had a scoreless two innings and closer Jim Henderson worked a perfect ninth for his 24th save in 28 chances. But clearly, the star of the night was Gallardo. "His command was really good," Roenicke said. "Hes had his good command for quite a few starts. After a rough start for him this season, hes bounced back and he has life on his balls. All of his pitches, hes (throwing) well." NOTES: To make room for Baker on the 40-man roster, the Cubs designated INF Cody Ransom for assignment. "Unfortunately, Ransoms been here all year and its kind of a weird time to designate someone on Sept. 8," manager Dale Sveum said. "Its an unfortunate thing, but its part of the business." Ransom, 37, made 38 starts at 3B. He hit .189 with nine home runs and 20 RBIs. ... Brewers OF Khris Davis (left wrist) hasnt played since Wednesday. With Mondays off-day, manager Ron Roenicke said he hopes Davis can return on Tuesday in St. Louis. ... The Cubs are at Cincinnati on Monday with Travis Wood (8-11) facing Bronson Arroyo (13-10). ... The Brewers are off until Tuesday when they begin a series in St. Louis with Wily Peralta (9-14) going against Shelby Miller (12-9).

Subban and Matt Duchene will be the two skaters sitting out the teams opening game.One putt gave Bubba Watson a rare sense of calm. One swing reminded Martin Kaymer he finally had all the shots. One pitch proved to Rory McIlroy he could master links golf.These were not the defining shots from the majors this year.But they meant something special to the winners, and they were tied to lessons from the past.Asked to choose the signature shot of his Masters victory and a shot that was particularly pleasing to him, Watson found both on the same hole and the same day — Sunday on the par-5 13th at Augusta National.With a two-shot lead and six holes to play, he hit driver so outrageously bold and long that it sailed down the left side of the fairway, over the trees and disappeared for a nervous moment until plopping down in the fairway.It could have easily hit a tree and gone the wrong way or dropped down in the creek, Watson said. When you lose the ball over the trees, thats when you get nervous because you cant see it. When you hear the roar of the crowd, you can breathe again.With nothing more than a sand wedge to the green, however, Watson hit it to 20 feet and then left his eagle attempt 6 feet short. And thats when he leaned on his experience from winning his first green jacket.If you go back to 12, the same thing happened, he said. I hit 9-iron in there and left the putt 7 feet short and I made it. That started four (birdies) in a row. It was the same with this eagle putt. I left it way short. I just said to myself, Well, last time you did this you made the putt and won. I knew after that tee shot if I made birdie theyd have to put on a show to beat me.Making that putt was a key moment for me — for my confidence, calmness, everything.Picking out a signature shot for Kaymer isnt easy in an eight-shot, wire-to-wire victory at Pinehurst No. 2. He quickly settled on the par-5 fifth hole Saturday, where he hit 7-iron from a sandy area to an elevated green, the ball stopping 5 feet away for eagle to restore his momentum. He had started with two bogeys in four holes, and had just made a 15-foot par putt on No. 4 to avoid double bogey.Within 15 minutes, to go from a little negative to super, super positive, that was a defining moment for me, he said.But the most satisfying moment?Go back to the fourth hole on Friday, a shot that was insignificant to everyone but Kaymer and caddie Craig Connelly. The German had spent two years retooling his swing to become a complete player, not just the guy who hits a fade. He was in the fairwayy, stuck between clubs. Isaiah Thomas Jersey. Kaymer felt the shot called for a draw.This was a major test.I was 100 per cent convinced I would hit that high draw to 6 or 7 feet short of the pin, Kaymer said. A draw used to be difficult to hit. Nowadays, its not a big problem. But I pulled off the shot and said to Craig, How good was that golf shot? I started it at the right edge of the green. The rhythm was good. It was a crisp hit. The flight was good, 10 feet short of the hole. For me, it was the best shot I hit all week.McIlroy might have won the British Open on Saturday when he made two eagles on the last three holes to stretch his lead to six shots. The lasting image is his swing and pose with than 5-iron into the 18th at Royal Liverpool to 10 feet for eagle.In his eyes, the claret jug wasnt his until he drilled a driver on the par-5 16th hole Sunday to set up a two-putt birdie and take a three-shot lead.But it was the next hole — a par — that he found particularly pleasing.Not a defining moment in the tournament, yet a really important one, he said. My pitch over the bunker on the 17th hole on Sunday was extremely difficult and demanded a lot of feel and control. It was a true links shot I had to make — pick a spot, get the pace right and let it run out to the hole.It was close to perfect.That really felt good, he said.The PGA Championship was the most exciting major. Four players had a share of the lead on the back nine. The shot that ultimately won McIlroy a second straight major was his 9-iron out of a fairway bunker to 10 feet for birdie on No. 17 at Valhalla for a two-shot lead with one hole to play.In his eyes, how he started the back nine Sunday was as important as how he finished.Trailing by three shots, he hit 3-wood from 281 yards to 7 feet for eagle on the par-5 10th that got him back in the game. It wasnt the purest shot McIlroy hit at Valhalla, but he found a small measure of redemption. Remember, McIlroy hit 3-wood over the fence and out-of-bounds in the opening round and made double bogey.That was Thursday, with time on his side. This was Sunday, with time running out.I had taken a 7 at the 10th ... and wasnt sure what I could manage as I stood over my 3-wood on Sunday, he said. And then everything pretty much seemed to change for me after that point. My game had been a little flat, and I couldnt find a spark.Over the next few holes, my confidence grew and I felt I could swing the tournament back in my favour.
