|Cubs Literally Throw Away Game Against Brewers
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Gomez raced home from first base on a sacrifice bunt and throwing error in the 10th inning, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a wild 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.
Gomez pinch-hit and drew a leadoff walk from Bob Howry (1-1). Craig Counsell followed with a bunt and the speedy Gomez rounded second base and just kept going. First baseman Xavier Nady's frantic throw to third sailed wild, allowing Gomez to score.
Milwaukee's Corey Hart hit his NL-leading 16th homer in the second inning _ ignoring the roar of the Navy Blue Angels, who are in town for a weekend air show and were flying over Miller Park.
Nady, filling in on a day off for Derrek Lee, hit a two-run homer.
