Wisdom sets Cubs rookie record with 27th HR, beat Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) Patrick Wisdom set a Chicago Cubs record for homers by a rookie on a day that exemplified his feast-or-famine approach.

Wisdom struck out four times for a second straight day but delivered a towering three-run shot that highlighted the Chicago Cubs' eighth-inning comeback in a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

"It's tough when you have nights like I did last night, and then you see your name in the lineup again hitting fourth," Wisdom said. "You're like, `Well, they still believe in me. I've got to believe in myself.' It's kind of like a gut check to say, `Hey, let's go.' Keep believing. Keep going."
