Cubs In Haiku: Brewers 9, Cubs 5

Poor start for Harden
Gives up five runs in six frames
Offense can't climb back

The Cubs three-game winning streak ended when they fell to the Brewers Wednesday night.  There were a couple of offensive highlights - Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the fifth and Theriot went 3-for-4. Even Aaron Miles managed a hit and scored a run. But Harden struggled and David Patton - who came on in relief in the 4th - didn't do much better, giving up 4 runs in just one-and-a-third innings. 

The only time the Cubs threatened after the 5th was when they put two men on with nobody out in the 8th. But Theriot, otherwise effective at the plate, grounded into a double play and Fukudome flew out to end the inning.
