|Brewers Come Back to Beat Cubs
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Casey McGehee hit a two-run, two-out single in the ninth, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs Tuesday night.
Facing Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol with runners on second and third and the Brewers trailing by one, McGehee rolled a single up the middle to score Rickie Weeks and Prince Fielder and give Milwaukee a much-needed home victory over their NL Central rivals.
Marmol (1-1) had converted six straight save opportunities.
It was another wasted effort for hard-luck Cubs starter Ted Lilly, who last won at Miller Park on April 24 and has gone eight straight starts without a win despite pitching fairly well. He was dominant Tuesday, allowing one run and four hits over eight innings while striking out eight.
Corey Hart hit his 15th home run of the season for Milwaukee.
