The Brewers carved into an early four-run deficit, largely created by the two homers Tomo Ohka allowed in the first, but they couldn't catch the Cubs in the opener. Lyle Overbay hit a two-run homer, Rickie Weeks added an RBI double and Bill Hall went 2-for-4 and scored twice in the comeback attempt.
