Story By Associated Press

CHICAGO - Logan Schafer hit a three-run triple and Johnny Hellweg pitched six innings for his first career major league victory in the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Hellweg (1-3) allowed three runs on four hits. He struck out one and pitched around three walks to finally earn his first victory after flourishing in the minors.

Brewers relievers Rob Wooten and Brandon Kintzler each pitched a scoreless inning then Jim Henderson pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 27 opportunities.

Hellweg was the Pacific Coast League's pitcher of the year after going 12-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 23 starts at Triple-A Nashville.

The Cubs got solo homers from Luis Valbuena and Brian Bogusevic who fell to 16 games under .500 at Wrigley Field. With the loss, the Cubs dropped behind the Brewers for last place in the NL Central.

RHINELANDER - Dozens of people filled their stomachs with chili while also filling up a charity donation box Tuesday.

First Supply in Rhinelander hosted its 4th annual Chili for Charity.

First Supply employee Brad Spicer said ten employees whipped up their own versions of chili and invited the public to vote on their favorite dish.

"I put beer stouts into the chili, brown sugar, bacon, probably six or seven pounds of meat. It's pretty hearty," said Spicer.

Employee Brian Berns said the Rhinelander store collected donations at a minimum of $5 a bowl to give to Camp American Legion, an organization that helps injured or disabled veterans.
