Greinke strikes out 12, Brewers beat Cubs 8-0


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Zack Greinke had a season-high 12 strikeouts and the Milwaukee Brewers rediscovered their offense, beating the Chicago Cubs 8-0 on Wednesday night.

   Greinke (7-2) extended his home winning streak to 15 straight decisions at Miller Park.

   Greinke gave up two hits in seven innings, with two walks and a wild pitch.

   Brooks Conrad -- who came into Wednesday's game batting .059 this season -- had a two-run single for the Brewers, while Ryan Braun and Cody Ransom each had RBI doubles. Norichika Aoki had a walk and three hits after being moved to the leadoff spot and Taylor Green hit a three-run homer, the first of his career.
