MILWAUKEE (AP) - Pinch-hitter Tommy La Stella drew a bases-loaded walk off All-Star closer Corey Knebel with one out in the 10th inning, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 to tighten their grip on the NL Central. The Cubs hold a five-game lead with nine days left in the regular season after winning their second tense game over the Brewers.

CHICAGO (AP) - A woman in the stands at Guaranteed Rate Field was hit in the mouth by a foul ball, but the Chicago White Sox say she refused treatment. The woman was seated in box seats near the first-base railing, about 30 feet beyond the Royals' dugout. She was struck by a ball that skipped into the stands off the bat of Kansas City designated hitter Brandon Moss. Ushers and stadium personnel moved quickly to aid the woman, who remained seated for a while.
