The Brewers crushed the Cubs 11-2 on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Former Cubs player Casey McGehee had a career day going 4 for 5 with 5 RBI’s and 3 runs scored. McGehee was a double shy of hitting for the cycle. Rich Harden took the loss – going 2+ innings, giving up 7ER on 8 hits and 1 walk. Batting 6th in the lineup for the 1st time all season, Alfonso Soriano went 0 for 4 with 2 K’s. David Patton and Jeff Samardzija each gave up 2 ER in relief outings. Ouch.
With the Reds beating the Cards, the Cubs stayed 2.5 games behind each of the Brewers and Cards for 1st place in the NL Central.
