Brewers Get 26 Hits in 18-1 Win Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Prince Fielder drove in five runs and had five of Milwaukee's season-high 26 hits and Yovani Gallardo tied a season-high with 12 strikeouts as the Brewers pounded the Chicago Cubs 18-1 on Monday night.

The Cubs tied a franchise record for hits allowed, matching Sept. 2, 1957, when they lost to the Milwaukee Braves.

After scoring two runs in a three-game series against Houston, the Brewers broke out against an overmatched pitching staff.

Ryan Braun also had five hits for Milwaukee, which snapped a five-game losing streak. Casey McGhee had a three-run homer and Fielder had a three-run double.

Corey Hart finished with four hits for the Brewers.

Gallardo (10-5) allowed one run and two hits over six innings.
