MILWAUKEE, April 10 (UPI) -- Casey McGehee came off the bench to belt a two-run homer in the eighth inning Sunday, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs.
McGehee's pinch-hit smash off Kerry Wood (0-1) rallied the Brewers from a 5-4 deficit and gave them the rubber contest of a three-game series at Miller Park.
McGehee's homer made a winner of Kameron Loe (1-0), who tossed 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. John Axford hurled a scoreless ninth to pick up his third save.
Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with three RBI and Darwin Barney also batted in a run for the Cubs.
