On Thursday, the Cubs took their first lead in a game this season and went on to win for the first time, 6-3 over the Brewers.
Alfonso Soriano, in his return to the leadoff spot, had his first hit, first stolen base and first two RBIs.
Aramis Ramirez had his first hit and first home run.
Ryan Dempster won in his first starting assignment since 2005.
After 212 Major League appearances, Kerry Wood earned his first career save.
And on Chicago's WSCR radio, serially unfunny afternoon drive-time host Dan Bernstein managed to say something amusing:
Instead of being nicknamed "The Hebrew Hammer," the Brewers' defensively challenged slugger, Ryan Braun, should be known as "The Kosher Butcher."
