MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAU-Sports Network) -- Dioner Navarro swatted a three-run homer to support seven strong innings from Matt Garza, and the Chicago Cubs posted a 7-2 decision over the Milwaukee Brewers to earn their first series win in Miller Park in 2 1/2 seasons.

Garza (3-1) struck out a season-best 10 batters and limited Milwaukee to one run while scattering eight hits. He made an impact at the plate as well, going 2-for-3 with a run scored to help Chicago earn its second straight victory to cap the three-game set.

Starlin Castro also had two hits and scored once for the Cubs, who last took a series in Milwaukee from Sept. 10-12, 2010.

Brewers starter Wily Peralta (5-9) surrendered all seven runs in his five- inning stint, though just three were earned due to a pair of errors that led to Chicago scoring four times in the top of the third.

Juan Francisco homered for a third straight game in the loss, with Logan Schafer driving in Milwaukee's other run with a sixth-inning double.
