The Milwaukee Brewers dropped the deciding game of their weekend series with the Cubs today in Chicago
It was the eighth victory in nine games for Chicago, which still trails the National League Central leading Brewers by six and a half games.
Chicago jumped ahead early after its season-high seven-game winning streak ended with a 13-to-4 defeat the previous day. Aramis Ramirez doubled in two runs in the first inning, and Derrek Lee and Mark DeRosa singled across runs in the third as the Cubs took a 4-to-nothing lead.
Corey Hart had a leadoff homer for Milwaukee in the sixth.
