Ted Lilly, Cubs Knock Brewers Back Into A Wild Card Tie: Cubs 7, Brewers 3

Ted Lilly had a no-hitter going through six and dominated the Milwaukee Brewers, just as he had only a couple starts prior on September 15 against the Astros at the same place. The Brewers sent a clearly injured or inept Ben Sheets to the mound for the start in a roll of the dice. Dale Sveum paid for it immediately, as the Tiny Bears knocked a pair out in the first inning on Daryle Ward's two-run homer, and Micah Hoffpauir's two-run, bases-loaded RBI single in the third. That proved a knock-out blow for Sheets.

Though the Brewers got a look at the game by scratching out three runs against the Cubs' relief corps, the Cubs answered with a three-run ninth-inning rally that included a rare Kosuke Fukudome home run put the game away. The Brewers are now tied — again — for the NL Wild Card lead, as the Mets blanked the Marlins 2-0 behind Johan Santana.
