CHICAGO, IL. (AP) Adrian Houser dominated over seven innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the White Sox 1-0 to snap Chicago’s six-game win streak.

The Brewers held struggling star Christian Yelich out of the lineup, with the 2018 NL MVP and two-time defending NL batting champion mired in a season-opening 3-for-34 slump.

The Brewers ended Chicago’s best streak since a six-game run in April 2017.

Houser simply dazzled on a night when Dallas Keuchel was about as good for Chicago.

The 27-year-old right-hander gave up five hits and struck out five. Eric Sogard drove in Mark Mathias with a single in the third, and that was all Milwaukee needed.
