Derek Lee led the Cubs with a career-high seven RBI on two home runs, going two-for-four on the day.
Ryan Dempster had a decent start, allowing just three earned runs in six and 2/3 innings, tying a season high with nine strikeouts.
The Cubs scored all of their runs on home runs, starting with Lee’s first home run, a three-run jack in the first inning, which also drove in Sam Fuld and Ryan Theriot.
Two batters later, Jake Fox hit another home run, this one a solo shot that put the Cubs up 4-0 in the first inning.
The Brewers battled back in the second with a Mike Cameron home run that also knocked in Prince Fielder.
The Cubs again broke out in the fourth inning, starting off with a Geovany Soto solo home run with no outs.
