Castro Hits Walk Off Single To Push Cubs Past Brewers

Last updated on Wednesday, June 15, 2011

(CHICAGO, IL) - The Chicago Cubs came from behind to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 in ten innings.

Rookie Tony Campana led off the Cubs' tenth with a double, was sacrificed to third by Kosuke Fukudome and scored on Starlin Castro's game-ending single.

The Brewers led 4-1 in the eighth when Castro hit an RBI double and Aramis Ramirez tied the game with a two-run homer.

Milwaukee missed an opportunity to take over sole possession of first place in the NL Central with the St. Louis loss and wasted a good outing by starter Yovani Gallardo.

Gallardo allowed a run on three hits and struck out ten in his seven innings of work but did not figure in the decision.
