Cubs 9, Brewers 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Derrek Lee and Cliff Floyd each got four hits and Chicago stopped a three-game losing streak, improving to 4-9 at Wrigley Field.

Chicago took a 5-0 lead in fourth off Elmer Dessens (1-1), and all the runs were unearned because of an error by shortstop J.J. Hardy, who couldn't come up with Jacque Jones' grounder.
