Lucroy sets doubles record in Brewers' 2-1 win over Cubs

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jonathan Lucroy set a major-league record for doubles in a season by a catcher, and Francisco Rodriguez moved into 10th place on baseball's career saves list in the Milwaukee Brewers' 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Wily Peralta (17-11) struck out a career-high 13 in seven innings, allowing five hits and one walk in 109 pitches. Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth for his 348th career save, and 44th this year, to move ahead of Randy Myers.

Lucroy's double off Tsuyoshi Wada (4-4) in the fifth inning snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the All-Star his 46th double as a catcher, topping the 45 hit by Texas' Ivan Rodriguez in 1996. Lucroy has 53 doubles this year, tying the Brewers' franchise record. Seven were hit when he played first base.
