On Sunday, the Cardinals Albert Pujols burst the Cubs bubble with a three-run homer in the 10th. Monday was even worse. If that's possible.
Prince Fielder hit a solo homer off Rocky Cherry to give the Brewers a 5-4 win over Chicago at Wrigley Field.
Chicago staked Carlos Zambrano to a 4-0 lead but Milwaukee crept back in the game and tied it with two runs in the 8th. The Cubs Derrick Lee got to first in the bottom of the 12th but was not able to get into scoring position as Derrick Turnbow struck out Jacque Jones and Mark DeRosa.
The Cubs are now five games behind Miwaukee in the NL Central
