    Chicago 13, Milwaukee 6

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Derrek Lee homered and drove in five runs in the Chicago Cubs' 13-6 win over Milwaukee on Tuesday that snapped a four-game skid.

    Lee hit a three-run homer off Jorge De La Rosa in the second and a two-run double off Tommy Phelps in the third that made it 9-2.

    The Brewers, who made four errors Sunday night against Texas, committed three more, including one by first baseman Lyle Overbay that led to six unearned runs in the second inning.

    Jeromy Burnitz went 3-for-3 and Jerry Hairston was 4-for-5 as the Cubs collected 18 hits off a group of reliever, including three -- Phelps, Justin Lehr and Julio Santana -- who are fighting for the final job in the Brewers' bullpen. None separated themselves from the field.

    Sergio Mitre earned the victory, allowing three runs and five hits in 3 2-3 innings.

    Brewers catcher Damian Miller bruised his left hand in the fourth inning and left the game but didn't need X-rays and is expected to be available Wednesday.

    He's the fourth starter to go down since the weekend, joining third baseman Russell Branyan (strep throat), second baseman Junior Spivey (concussion) and center fielder Brady Clark (sinus infection), all of whom missed the game.
