MILWAUKEE (AP) - Sean Halton hit his first career grand slam, Tyler Thornburg allowed just two singles over six innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 7-0 on Wednesday night.

Thornburg (3-1) struck out four and walked two as he reached six innings for the sixth straight start since being recalled from Triple A Nashville on June 29. He has allowed five earned runs in 36 innings as a starter and has also made 11 relief appearances for the Brewers this season. At Nashville, he was 0-9 with a 5.79 ERA in 15 starts.

Jimmy Nelson pitched two innings and Michael Blazek got the last three outs to preserve the four-hit shutout.

Halton's homer capped a five-run first inning off Chris Rusin (2-5).
