Rookie pitcher Alberto Cabrera pitched in relief of Rusin in the sixth inning. He didn't fare too well as he loaded the bases on three walks and the Cubs were in a 4-0 deficit.
In other Cubs news, Matt Garza was transferred to the 60-day disabled list, which means that he is done for the season due to elbow stress reaction.
Garza said, "If this is it, it's disappointing because I wanted to finish it off. I'd like to be the guy to step out there every five days and be known for that. A little hiccup, but come back stronger. … I've learned a lot from what I have to deal with right now. I'm not fine, I'm never going to be fine with it," he said. "But you have to accept it."

The Cubs are also planning to move the Class A Peoria Chiefs to Kane County, which is in the suburb of Geneva, in order to be closer to Chicago starting in 2013. Kane County is currently a part of the Kansas City Royals, but that affiliation expires at the end of the 2012 season.
Tomorrow the Cubs and Brewers will play the final game in the series at 1:10pm CT. Travis Wood will start for the Cubs and try to earn his fifth win of the season.
