Cubs beat Brewers 6-4


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Derrek Lee doubled with one out in the ninth to score Alfonso Soriano and the Chicago Cubs rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4 on Monday night to take a two-game lead in the NL Central.

In the opener of a four-game series between the NL's top two teams, the Cubs prevailed in a back-and-forth contest to improve to 32-26 at Miller Park since it opened in 2001.

With the game tied at 4, Brewers closer Salomon Torres (5-3) struck out Kosuke Fukudome, but ran into trouble by walking Soriano and pinch hitter Mike Fontenot.

Lee then flared a double to right, scoring Soriano. After an intentional walk to Aramis Ramirez and a strike out by Geovany Soto, Mark DeRosa's infield single scored Fontenot to make it 6-4.
