MILWAUKEE -

Matt Garza struck out 10 in seven solid innings and Dioner Navarro hit a three-run homer, sending the Chicago Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

Garza (3-1) had his third consecutive strong outing.

The right-hander allowed one run on eight hits and a walk while throwing 101 pitches.

Garza, who can become a free agent after the season, is expected to be one of the top pitchers available on the trade market as the July 31 non-waiver deadline approaches.

The Cubs broke the game open with four runs in the third, capped by Navarro's seventh homer.

Milwaukee made a pair of errors and all the runs in the inning off Wily Peralta (5-9) were unearned.
