Here are the details:

The Chicago Cubs shut out the Milwaukee
Brewers at Miller Park for the second time this season, with an 8-nothing rout
yesterday.  Jason Hammel was the starter both times for the last-place Cubs.
He's now 5-and-0 all-time against the Brewers, after he struck out eight in
seven innings while giving up the only four hits Milwaukee had on the day.  That
ended the Crew's streak of nine games with ten hits or more, which had tied a
team record set in 1983 and 2011.  Hammel improved to 6-and-3 overall.  Wily
Peralta took the loss.  He's now 4-and-5 overall, and 0-and-4 in his last five
starts, after being tagged for six runs on five hits and a pair of walks in
five-and-two-thirds innings.  Anthony Rizzo hit a pair of two-run homers for
Chicago, which snapped a three-game losing streak.  Scooter Gennett had two hits
for Milwaukee, which broke a three-game winning string.  Carlos Gomez ended a
ten-game hitting streak, while Khris Davis extended his streak to nine games by
going 1-for-3.  The Brewers will close out their three-game set against the Cubs
this afternoon.  Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces Cubs' righty Jeff


The Brewers will have the 12th pick in
the first round when the Major League Draft begins on Thursday night.  That
sounds low, but Brewers' scouting director Bruce Seid (side) says he doesn't
mind.  That's because a high pick indicates that a team is not playing well at
the Major League level -- and unlike the football and basketball drafts,
immediate help in the baseball draft is almost never available.  Seid says
Milwaukee has not had a Top-ten pick in several years -- and that's fine with
him.  As it is, the Brewers have their highest pick in several years after
struggling to a 74-and-88 record last year.  Seid says this year's draft is
especially deep in pitching, but teams will have to be extremely careful with
their selections.  Two of this year's previous top picks -- starters Erick Fedde
of Nevada-Las Vegas and Jeff Hoffman of East Carolina -- recently had Tommy John
elbow reconstructive surgery.


In golf, Steve Stricker of Madison is
tied for 20th going into today's final round of the P-G-A's Memorial Tournament
in Dublin Ohio.  Stricker shot a two-under-par 70 in his third round yesterday.
He's now five-under for the tournament at 211 -- seven strokes in back of the
leader, Bubba Watson.  Pewaukee native Mark Wilson is tied for 60th.  He shot a
two-over-74 yesterday, and he's at plus-one 217 for the


Rhinelander native Dan Forsman is tied
for 65th at the Principal Charity Classic on the P-G-A Champions Tour.  Forsman
shot a three-over-par 75 in his second round yesterday in Des Moines Iowa.  He's
now at two-over-146.  Doug Garwood has the lead at 11-under.


Wisconsin NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth
took fourth yesterday in the Nationwide Series' Buckle-Up-200 at Dover Delaware.
He was the only Wisconsin driver in the event, as he gears up for today's
Sprint Cup Fed-Ex 400.  Kyle Busch won yesterday's race, after winning the
Camping World Truck Series' event on Friday night.  Busch goes for a weekend
sweep today in NASCAR's top circuit.  Kenseth -- who's second in the Sprint Cup
point standings -- starts 21st this afternoon.  Paul Menard of Eau Claire starts
15th, and Beloit-born Danica Patrick 28th.


Tomahawk native Alyssa Lampe made the
U-S women's wrestling team for the fourth time, by beating Victoria Anthony in a
best-of-three series at the World Team Trials last night in Madison.  The two
traded victories before Lampe won the deciding match, 6-to-nothing.  The trials
wrap up today at the Alliant Energy Center.  Wrestlers are competing for spots
on Team U-S-A at this year's World meet.


Three Wisconsin Badgers advanced
yesterday to the N-C-A-A Division-One outdoor track meet, along with one athlete
from U-W Milwaukee.  Senior Mohammed Ahmed advanced in the men's five-thousand
meters, after placing fourth in his heat at the West Regional in Fayetteville
Arkansas.  Ahmed had advanced in the ten-thousand-meters on Thursday night.
Badgers' senior Danny Block finished tenth in the men's discus to move on to
the nationals.  Also, Milwaukee's Durell Busby made the nationals by placing
eighth overall in the 110-meter hurdles at the regionals.   On the women's side,
Wisconsin sophomore Molly Hanson placed second in her heat of the 15-hundred
meters to make the national field.  The N-C-A-A finals begin June 11th in Eugene


In rowing, two Wisconsin men's boats
will compete in the today's grand finals at the I-R-A National Championships in
West Windsor New Jersey.  The Badgers' varsity-four advanced with a third-place
finish in their semi-final yesterday.  The freshman-eight boat made the finals
by placing second behind Cornell in a repechage.  On the women's side, the
Badgers' lightweight-eight won its heat yesterday to advance to today's grand
final at West Windsor.  The varsity lightweight-eight placed second in a
repechage to make today's grand final in that event.  At the N-C-A-A women's
regatta in Indianapolis, the Wisconsin varsity-eight will compete in a
third-level final today, going for overall places 13th-through-18th after
placing second in a semi-final yesterday.  The Badgers' second varsity eight won
its semi to advance to its third-level final.  The varsity-four will be in its
petite final today after a fifth-place semi-final finish yesterday.
