Jeter slams door shut on Cubs
Jason Dubois hit a solo homer in the sixth inning, but it was the only run the Cubs scored against Chien-Ming Wang, who held them to five hits. Derrek Lee went 2-for-3 and accounted for nearly half of Chicago's hits off Wang. Left-hander Glendon Rusch gave up five runs, four earned, over five-plus innings and took the loss.

Derek Jeter ended a 135-at-bat streak without a grand slam when he took Joe Borowski deep in the sixth to put the game out of reach for the Cubs and made a winner of Chien-Ming Wang, who allowed one run in eight innings. Jeter added a solo shot in the eighth.
