CHICAGO -- Scooter Gennett and the Milwaukee Brewers scuttled the Chicago Cubs plans for a big party.Gennett broke a seventh-inning tie when he drove in two runs with a pinch-hit double, and the Brewers spoiled the Cubs first chance to clinch the NL Central title with a 5-4 victory Thursday night.You never want to lose a game and see the other team celebrate, Gennett said. We want to win ballgames. Unfortunately the situation were in, maybe weve got to ruin some nights and tonight was an example of that.Keon Broxton homered and Orlando Arcia drove in two runs as the Brewers (66-81) won for the first time in seven games this year at Wrigley Field. Jimmy Nelson (8-14) pitched six effective innings and Tyler Thornburg got four outs for his 10th save.It was just a flat-out good ballgame, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. It was obviously, with where theyre at, there was great energy in the park tonight.A crowd of 41,362 packed Chicagos iconic neighborhood ballpark hoping to celebrate the teams first division title since 2008. But Gennetts clutch hit made the Cubs (93-53) wait for St. Louis 6-2 loss at San Francisco to wrap up the NL Central crown.It appeared manager Joe Maddon and his players were long gone by the time the Cardinals lost. But there was a loud cheer in the Wrigleyville neighborhood when the West Coast game concluded, and several people honked their car horns.This is just the first step, Maddon said before the Cardinals lost. I mean, we have much larger baseball fish to fry in our skillet.Jorge Soler hit a two-run homer for the Cubs, who had won three of four. Mike Montgomery pitched six solid innings and helped himself with a tying single in the fourth for his first career hit.Justin Grimm (1-1) replaced Montgomery in the seventh, and the Brewers put runners on first and third with one out. Gennett, batting for Nelson, blooped an 0-2 curveball into the left-field corner for a 5-3 Milwaukee lead.I was just trying to put the ball in play, Gennett said. Hes a guy who throws a lot of curveballs so its important not to get too big or try to do too much. Its really just, get a good pitch to hit and put it in play.The Cubs got one back on Jason Heywards RBI double in the eighth, but Thornburg threw a called third strike past pinch-hitter Willson Contreras with runners at the corners to end the inning.With two outs and a runner on first in the ninth, Thornburg got Ben Zobrist to bounce into a game-ending fielders choice.That was pretty awesome, Thornburg said. Ive never gotten the opportunity to throw in the playoffs. Thats about as close as I can imagine.Nelson won for only the second time in his last 11 starts as Milwaukee improved to 4-4 on an 11-game trip. The right-hander allowed eight hits, struck out seven and walked two.FINISHING STRONGMilwaukee outfielder Domingo Santana went 2 for 4 with two doubles and scored twice. He is batting .400 (14 for 35) in his last nine games.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: RHP Michael Blazek (right forearm strain) threw a simulated game. Counsell would like to get Blazek into some games before the end of the season, but said theres no rush. The goal with Mike is just to go into the offseason healthy, Counsell said.Cubs: RHP Pedro Strop, who tweaked his right groin while working his way back from arthroscopic left knee surgery, threw a bullpen and said it went well. Hes getting close, Maddon said.

Jones took to Twitter following Sundays 10-2 road win over the Giants to voice his displeasure. Jones, who is African-American, claimed a fan at AT&T Park threw a banana at him. "I want to thank whatever slap---- threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u jack---," Jones tweeted. Jones went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI on Sunday. "We were extremely disappointed to learn about the incident involving Adam Jones at AT&T Park yesterday," the teams statement read. "The Giants have a zero tolerance policy against this type of behavior, which results in immediate ejection from the ballpark. While we have been investigating the matter since we learned of the situation, unfortunately we have been unable to identify the person responsible. We would like too extend our sincerest apologies to Adam and the entire Orioles organization for this unfortunate incident.dddddddddddd The inappropriate actions of this individual in no way reflect the values of our organization and our fans." The fan in question is reportedly Alexander Poulides, who told the San Jose Mercury News he grabbed the banana off a catering cart and hurled it toward the field in disgust near the end of the game. Poulides told the newspaper the incident was not racially motivated and his action for the banana toss was not at Jones, but toward the Giants and "their poor performance." Poulides said he was "embarrassed and shocked by the outcome," according to the newspaper. "In hindsight, I wish I didnt do it and I apologize. Im very sorry," he told the Mercury News. Wayne Simmonds of the NHLs Philadelphia Flyers had a banana hurled in his direction while on the ice during an exhibition game in Ontario in September 2011.
