Brewers bring out the big bats in 11-2 win over Cubs

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Rookie Casey McGehee had a career high four hits and five RBIs to help the Milwaukee Brewers pound Rich Harden and the Chicago Cubs 11-2 on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.

Mike Cameron and J.J. Hardy also went deep to back a solid effort by Braden Looper (7-4). But McGahee delivered his best performance against the organization that let him go during the offseason.

Claimed off waivers in October, he made the team in spring training and is now batting .331 in 46 games after going 4 for 5. He singled twice and tripled before hitting a two-run homer off Jeff Samardzija.

The Cubs had won three in a row after going 11-14 in June, but this was simply a brutal afternoon all around.
