CHICAGO (AP) - Jody Gerut hit a grand slam, Mike Rivera
delivered a key bases-loaded double and the Milwaukee Brewers beat
the Chicago Cubs 7-4 Thursday for a four-game split between teams
finishing disappointing seasons.
After making the playoffs last year - Chicago as the NL Central
champion and Milwaukee as the NL wild card - both teams are all but
out of contention with 2½ weeks left. The Cubs fell to 75-70 and
the Brewers are 71-75.
Gerut's second career grand slam capped a two-out rally that
started when Randy Wells (10-9) walked No. 8 hitter Alcides
Escobar, gave up a single to Brewers starter Dave Bush and another
walk to Felipe Lopez.
