Ramirez, Castro Rally Cubs Past Brewers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Starlin Castro looped a one-out single to right field in the 10th inning to score Tony Campana from third base, and the Chicago Cubs rallied past the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The winning run capped a late comeback as former Notre Dame wide receiver Jeff Samardzija (5-2) won his second straight game in relief.

Trailing 4-1, the Cubs scored three times in the eighth off Milwaukee reliever Marco Estrada. Castro doubled home Kosuke Fukudome, and Aramis Ramirez followed with his fifth homer, a two-run shot that tied it 4-all.

The rally spoiled a strong effort by Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo, who allowed three hits and struck out a season-high 10 in seven innings.
