Cubs Rally in Eighth to Beat Milwaukee
CHICAGO (AP) -- Kosuke Fukudome and Ryan Theriot each hit two-run singles with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 Wednesday afternoon.

The Cubs prevailed even though left fielder Alfonso Soriano got lifted after several more defensive lapses. Theriot had four hits, Fukudome drove in three runs and Geovany Soto hit his first homer.

LaTroy Hawkins (0-1) retired the first two Cubs hitters in the eighth, but a single by Jeff Baker and walks to Geovany Soto and Tyler Colvin loaded the bases. Theriot singled and stole second, setting up Fukudome's go-ahead hit.

Jeff Gray (1-0) won despite a rough eighth. Carlos Marmol struck out the side in the ninth for his third save in as many chances.
