Brewers hold off Cubs 4-3

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chris Narveson pitched 5 2-3 effective innings and also singled in a run, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cubs 4-3 Tuesday night, extending Chicago's losing streak to seven games.

Ryan Braun, who had five hits in Milwaukee's 18-1 victory the previous night, added three more singles. Prince Fielder followed his five-hit, five-RBI game with two singles and an RBI. And Casey McGehee, who drove in four runs Monday, had two more RBIs.

Thomas Diamond struck out 10 over six innings in his major league debut but couldn't prevent the Cubs (46-61) from falling 15 games under .500 for the first time since they ended 2006 at 66-96.
