Greinke Stays Perfect At Home, Brewers Win Again
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Zack Greinke pitched effectively into the eighth to remain perfect at home, Corey Hart homered for the second time in as many days and the Milwaukee Brewers swept the Chicago Cubs with a 3-2 win on Sunday.

Greinke (13-5) improved to 10-0 at Miller Park and didn't allow a hit until Marlon Byrd's fifth-inning bloop. In the bottom of the inning, Greinke singled, stole second and scored on Hart's blast.

The NL Central-leading Brewers began Sunday a franchise-best 10{ games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals, who faced Pittsburgh.

This one got tight late after John Axford allowed a solo homer to Tyler Colvin in the ninth and third baseman Casey McGehee bobbled two balls before tagging out Byrd to end it.
