Gallardo Fans 10, Fielder Homers, Brewers Top Cubs
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Yovani Gallardo matched a season high with 10 strikeouts over seven innings and Prince Fielder hit a 443-foot homer before the Brewers bullpen held on in Milwaukee's 6-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Casey McGehee and Corey Hart also homered for the Brewers, who moved 10{ games ahead of the Cardinals in the NL Central after St. Louis lost 7-0 to Pittsburgh.

Gallardo (15-8) allowed one unearned run and got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh, but Alfonso Soriano's three-run double off LaTroy Hawkins in the eighth made things interesting.

McGehee's two-run homer against Ryan Dempster (10-10) gave Milwaukee a 3-0 lead after the first, and Fielder and Hart helped the Brewers build a 6-1 lead before the Cubs rallied.
