Lake's Slam Helps Cubs Build Big Lead

CHICAGO (AP) - Rookie Junior Lake hit his first career grand slam in Chicago's five-run first inning and the Cubs held off the Milwaukee Brewers 8-5 on Friday.

Lake was 2 for 4 and has five homers since being called up July 19.

The Cubs and Brewers are tied for fourth place in the NL Central at 60-80.

The Cubs jumped on Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (9-9) in the first inning. Nate Schierholtz singled with one out and runners on first and second to drive in the first run. Two batters later, Lake homered on a 1-0 slider.

Carlos Villanueva (5-8) was the winner in relief. Kevin Gregg got the final three outs for his 30th save in 35 chances.
