Lee Continues Assault on Pitchers; Leads Cubs Past Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Derrek Lee hit his 35th homer and drove in two runs to set a new career mark with 109 RBIs, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 7-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night.

The Cubs won their third straight since suspending Milton Bradley for the season and Lee has continued his sizzling September. He's hitting .408 for the month and is 6 of 8 in this series with two home runs and six RBIs.

Lee has 10 homers in his last 20 games and leads the majors with 24 since July 1st.

Brewers slugger Prince Fielder led off the second with his 41st home run to extend his franchise-best RBI mark to 129, but Milwaukee didn't give Cubs starter Randy Wells (11-9) any other trouble over six solid innings.
