After Jeff Suppan had handcuffed the Cubs through six innings, the Milwaukee bullpen let Chicago back into the game and the Cubs took advantage, winning 5-3 on Tuesday at Wrigley.
Down 3-1, Jacque Jones lashed a two-run double to tie the game. The Brewers had two out when pitcher Scott Linebrink muffed a comebacker and the Cubs had the lead. Derrek Lee added an insurance run for the final tally.
Chicago is now two games clear of the Cardinals and 2 1/2 ahead of Milwaukee in the division
