CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrek Lee and Cliff Floyd each had four hits as the Chicago Cubs thumped the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3.

Floyd hit a two-run double in Chicago's five-run fourth, while Lee hit a solo homer in the fifth.

It was Lee's first home run since last September 11.

Ted Lilly improved to 2-2 giving up six hits and one earned run over seven innings.

Brewers starter Ben Sheets left with a strained right groin after pitching three scoreless innings.

The loss went to Elmer Dessens.

Tony Graffanino had two hits and an RBI for Milwaukee.

It was just 44 degrees at Wrigley Field when the game began after a 71-minute rain delay.
