The Milwaukee Brewers have won more games this season than any other major league team in their last at-bats but on Monday it was the Cubs getting it done in the 9th inning.
Derrek Lee sliced a double down the rightfield line off close Salomon Torres to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. The Cubs added an insurance run to make it 6-4.
Chicago had a 2-0 lead on Brewers star CC Sabathia before JJ Hardy and Ryan Braun went back-to-back to tie the game. Milwaukee went up 3-2 before Chicago rallied to take the 4-3 lead before the home team tied it up heading to the ninth.
The pitching matchup for game two is Cubs stopper Carlos Zambrano against Milwaukee ace, Ben Sheets.
