Aoki lifts Brewers past Cubs in 10th


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Norichika Aoki homered twice, including off Casey Coleman to lead off the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.

   The former Japanese batting champion entered the game with one homer, an inside-the-park homer on April 20.

   Aoki was mobbed by his teammates at home plate.

   Corey Hart hit a game-tying RBI double in the eighth for the Brewers, who took two out of three games from their NL Central rivals.

   Bryan LaHair temporarily gave Chicago the lead with a pinch-hit home run in the eighth and Koyie Hill added an RBI double for the Cubs. Coleman (0-1) took the loss.
