Ryan Dempster finally gets long overdue first win of the season as Cubs beat Brewers 10-0 in Milwaukee

Ryan Dempster finally gets his long overdue first win of the season as the Cubs beat the Brewers 10-0 tonight in Milwaukee.  Dempster was excellent and allowed just three hits and struck out three over seven scoreless innings pitched.  He didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning when Cody Ransom hit a leadoff single.

Tonight's win ends an 11-game road losing streak, which tied a club record.  I'm just glad the Cubs didn't set a new record by losing 12 in a row on the road!  It was also great to see Dempster receive run support from his teammates.

Alfonso Soriano and Bryan LaHair both his home runs tonight as the Cubs offense finally rose up.

Tomorrow the Cubs and Brewers will play game two of the three-game series at 7:10pm CT.  Paul Maholm will start for the Cubs and try for his fifth win of the season.

Today was also Day 2 of the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft.  Here's a link to my post from earlier today about the Cubs' selections today:  http://cubbynews.blogspot.com/2012/06/theo-epstein-jason-mcleod-and-jed-hoyer.html
