Brewers 4, Cubs 3
In addition to homering, Carlos Zambrano tossed 6 1/3 solid innings. (Nam Y. Huh/AP)
Carlos Zambrano hit his 13th career home run -- which tied a club record for homers by a pitcher -- and allowed just one run in 6 1/3 innings to put the Cubs in position to win, but closer Kerry Wood couldn't shut the door, allowing three runs in the ninth.
