MILWAUKEE (AP) -

  MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Major league ERA leader Kyle Hendricks threw six strong innings and the Chicago Cubs broke away late to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-2 Monday.
   Pinch hitter Chris Coghlan delivered a go-ahead single in a two-run seventh. He stayed in the game and got a two-run single in a four-run eighth for the NL Central leaders.
   Hendricks (14-7) gave up one run -- on Chris Carter's 33rd homer -- and five hits in six innings, and left with a 2.07 ERA. He is 5-0 with a 1.30 ERA over his last seven starts.
   It was 1-all in the seventh when Zach Davies (10-7) retired the first two batters. Miguel Montero then doubled, setting up RBI singles by Coghlan and Tommy La Stella.
   Ryan Braun hit his 25th homer in the Milwaukee ninth.
