Brewers hits 5 HRS in 15-4 win over Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez hit two of Milwaukee's five homers to lead the Brewers to a 15-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.

Ramirez, who played for the Cubs from 2003-11, hit a two-run shot in the fifth and a solo homer in the ninth as Milwaukee beat Chicago for the sixth straight time.

Ramirez's second homer followed a three-run shot by Ryan Braun that landed on Waveland Avenue, his NL-leading 35th of the season. Braun had four hits and five RBIs.

Corey Hart followed Ramirez with another shot that reached Waveland, giving Milwaukee back-to-back-to-back homers for the first time since Sept. 7, 2007 at Cincinnati.

The Brewers sent 14 batters to the plate and tacked on nine runs and eight hits in the ninth, finishing with a season-high 21 hits. Utility player Joe Mather got the final out of the inning for Chicago.
